Question about Dell Dimension 9200 PC Desktop
When it does power up and boot normally it shuts off after about 5 hours and then won't restart until it rests for ~12 hours.
What i did was myself i download I8KFanGUI, and turn my fan speed on high, now it has been working without shutting off, plus also I went into the bios and turned "speedstep" on, since i heard windows xp will use it regardless of the bios setting... that may have caused some problems itself causing a switch off. A few times though i could not start the pc, so i opened the case and snapped out the ram (not removing completely, just undoing the insert snaps on 1 side) and start the pc (might've had to unplug and replug a few times to get it to power on)... but i'm guessing i'll rarely have to do that... since i couldnt shut down the pc right 1 time it happened like that. But it is working now!

I may be able to help. Is the computer in a cool venilated space? It seems that after being powered on for that amount of time, it overheats and needs to cool down before being powered up. If possible you may want to consider PC cooling options, google is a good start for choosing a cooling kit-->
Another option, you can point a fan on the desktop where it is stored. This will help to keep the area around it cool, and essentially the computer.
Let me know if you have any questions.
