Workaround - i have the same problem with my dell gx260 but have a work around. unplug the power cord and let the unit sit for about 2 minutes. if you open the case you will see a large yellow led light on the motherboard. wait for the light to go out then plug the unit back in and power up. this works most every time on my machine but occassionally i need to repeat it.
i suspect it is the power supply not powering the hard disks and not a problem with the motherboard.
