Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
Unfortunately, Dell have stopped replacing MB's for the 270 so if the caps on the motherboard are corroded or bulging, you will need to get this replaced. With these faulty MB's, this can also affect your RAM, HDD, and fans so check all of these are working ok, even if your MB looks ok.

GX270's have the well known capacitor leakage issue.
When your motherboard is affected, one of the sympthoms is this error: CPU shutdown due to thermal event.
Ask DELL for help. They use to replace mainboard with no questions.
In case you can't, you can ask a local TV repair shop to replace capacitors on your mainboard. They are available cheap on ebay.
