Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop
When I try to boot I go through start-up and before the desktop times out and is funstional, the computer powers down.
Sounds like heatsink bracket has broken. my Dell 2350 has same problem. It is a plastic part that is used to clamp the heatsink onto the processor. The part number is 8T065 and is available on a couple of sites online for around $5.00. It is a fairly easy fix just make sure you save the two metal clips that go over the heatsink to use on the new bracket.

This is due to a safety mechanism with the processor. The pc is probably overheating. Unplug the computer. Take the side panel off. Check the black bracket that holds the heatsink (silver square with fins) and see if it is broken. You will need heatsink grease and a replacement bracket. The heatsink is what allows the heat to come from the processor and out the back of the computer. It must be seated properly or the computer will shut down when it reaches a certain temperature.
