Dell Dimension 2350 reboots every 3 secs

\015 I'm attempting to help the daughter of a friend with her PC problem. Dell Dimension 2350. Motherboard has ''Blueford E139765'' stamped on it. Upon powerup, PC reboots itself after only 2-3 seconds and keeps recycling in this manner indefinately. There are 4 LED lights on the motherboard marked A,B,C,D. A&B are amber and C&D are green - if this helps. Tried disconecting all components except C Drive, tried replacing CMOS battery. Disassembled, dusted/cleaned and reassembled all components - all no effect.\015

Answers :

Could be a couple of things.

Disconnect the C drive and see if the computer will stay turned on. If it does (you'll get an operating system not found error), then reconnect the c drive and see if you can get into the BIOS. If not, you'll need to replace the hard drive.

Could also be a faulty power supply. As soon as it tries to boot off the hard drive, it puts too much strain on the PS and causes a reboot.

Finally, if neither of those fix the issue, then the problem is motherboard and at that point it is more cost effective to replace the computer unless you can find a cheap, used motherboard. Good luck!
