Question about Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop
Here is what you need to do. Disconect the module with the usb ports from the motherboard. It took a while for me to figure it out but a damaged usb port will make the computer go nuts.

Sounds like you tried everything except reseating any other hardware that may or may not be placed in another socket such as PCI, AGP, etc... Like a Modem, Network adapter, Sound/Graphics card, Wireless card, etc... This is probably a wasted post as if you knew to check each stick of memory seperatly then you've probably already reseated all socketed hardware. Though, you could remove all non essential hardware such as I mentioned above and try installing Windows again?
Good luck and keep us posted.

One of the greatest factor in intermittent shutdowns is because of heat issues. try to check the fans if they are all spinning. if all fan's are ok then you only need to replace the motherboard. here's a manual that might come in handy http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/index.htm
Hope this helps.
