I had the same problem - shutting and restarting over and over again. When called Dell, they said it is most likely the motherboard and will need changing. I personally suspected that it has something to do with the power supply.
I was right. I replaced the 305W power supply with a 370W one. Problem solved with just £25 and a trip to Maplin.
Let me know if this helps.

Most computer repair shops have a tester that they can hook up to your power supply. You can also purchase one for yourself, they usually run $25-50, it may be viable to purchase one if the shop will charge that much to test.

You are out of luck my friend Hp must be the worst people on earth to buy a pc from i will never get a product from them again
it would seem that the fan you need is a sunon and they only made this fan for HP so you can only buy it from an HP registered seller and thier is only one that does this fan however you can not just buy the fan you must buy the whole cooling system and in the UK it will cost you £280 before VAT and shipping
phone this number 01925251697
they will give you all the info you need

You might have a cooling problem due to a fan malfunction. It is not clear whether it's the power supply fan or the CPU fan; in the latter case you might also have a thermal coupling problem. The symptoms you describe certainly seem to point to such.
My advice would be to replace the fan (or the whole power supply; you might also want to purchase a "Silent Power" unit for quieter computing). If it's the CPU fan and you are comfortable with, or know anyone comfortable with a bit of PC servicing, you might want to also unmount the heat sink from the CPU and replace the thermal paste between CPU and heatsink. Clean the heat dissipator (the black metal grille over the heatsink) with hot water and a bit of soap and dry thoroughly, or wipe it energically with a dust brush, before mounting the new fan on it.
