Look at the motherboard, check the capacitors. If the tops of them are bubbled up or there's something leaking from them, the motherboard is bad. Also, try removing your video card, and running with on board video.

Also, current PC's may need 350 watt powersupply. Check the model of your PC on the dell website to determine the best power supply.

Try reseating CPU and RAM.
Also unplug the power cord, and pressing down the power button over 20 seconds to discharge the PC.

Hope this helps!
