Question about Dell Studio Xps 7100 PC Desktop
After being off over night, the system will start normally and remain stable for about 15-20 minutes, but then randomly shuts down, show screen tearing, freezes, or restarts. After this happens it will not complete a restart successfully. I have reseated the memory cards, and checked all connections for tightness, and cleaned all possible dust from the inside of the machine. With the panel open, I have briefly started the machine and witnessed that both fans are operating.

It will tell you what is overheating. It may be the heatsink grease on the processor is dried out and not conducting heat away like it is supposed to.

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.
