Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 Intel Desktop PC - Intel Pentium 4 2GHz, 256MB DDR, 40GB HDD, CD-ROM, Windows XP
Look at the motherboard (mobo). Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything.
You could also try to change out the power supply if you can find another one that fits it.
