Could equally be the power supply.

Power supplies rarely go completely, have you got another unit you can swap it with?

It could be your Porcessor, try removing it and re-seating it, sometimes works. Also check that the processor heatsink is fixed correctly and the fan is working.

If it has a seperate graphics card make sure that is correctly seated - it's amazing how much force is required to put them in, but they can sometime move and stop the machine - especially if it's been transported

I do not normally push anywhere especially somewhere that I have in the past had a problem but
try the Dell Outlet there are some bargains on there if you search properly, I today received a new pc for my daughter from the outlet yes old technology but Dimension 1100 2.8Ghz XP pro 512ram 80GB HD with seperate speakers £200.00 delivered..... a bargain.
