    Have you added any hardware to the system?
    Have you checked to see if the cooling fan is turning when it is running?
    Have you taken a can of compressed air and blown the dust out of the cooling vanes on the heat sink?

I would suggest opening the side of the case and removing any dust or debris thoroughly with a can of compressed air.

Often times this is caused simply by dust.

After this. I would make sure all your connections are good, and start the machine with the side panel off of the case. Notice if any fans are making a "whining" or "hissing" noise. Also, if any fans are spinning slowly, or alternating speed dramatically enough to actually see the change.

If any of these issues are present I would suggest replacing the fan. A local computer shop would have one cheapest, but if you need to large corp. electronic stores may carry them.

If this information was helpful please rate.

Opitions:
1.) Your system may have an over heating problem
Make sure all your fans are running and not making excessive noise.

2.)You may be a victim of spyware/maleware infections. You will need to have your system cleaned. This should help resolve your issue.

I would recommend trying CCleaner first to see if this helps you. Please keep in mind this will not rid your system of everything just keep you a float and offer you a fighting chance.

Please keep me posted and updated on your issue. I am here for you and will see your issues out till resolved.

Have a great and wonderful day :)

Dell XPS 200 Computer shuts off leaving blinking amber light


3 most common solutions to your problem are:
  1. Bad power supply; once it heats up will quit without warning
  2. Bad heatsink/fan; processor heats up and will lock up your Pc
  3. Bad motherboard
Try opening the machine and give the inside a thorough cleaning, paying special attention to the heatsink and fan. Once clean and you've ensured the fan is operating, put it back together and see if your problem is fixed. If not, a new power supply will likely fix your problem. Best of luck.

Is the amber light blinking? Indicates PS not operating within specs. You can look at replacing the PS (~$79-99). GL

Tower Will not turn on.


Blinking yellow/amber light indicates PS not operating within specs. You can look at replacing the PS but might need to find out if something else caused the PS problem, such as other components caused the PS to overheat, etc. Were you having any problems with any of the drives? Strange noises etc?

Slow, overheating, shuts itself off


sounds like your internal fans are taking early retirement, from all the symptoms..like running a car with no oil, you don't want to run a dell desktop without internal cooling..need to replace that fan..not too hard, actually.
