Lately my Dell desktop pc at home has been shutting down and not booting back up.
After it shuts down, when I try to boot it back up (there are 2 lights on the front, one is yellow and one is green), only one yellow light comes on and I hear the fans kick on high speed immediately, even though the pc isn't booting.
Strangely, after I let it sit for a while and keep trying to boot it up, after several (20+) attempts, it will boot up normally with no errors or blue screens etc..
Some things to consider are:
It's old (2001) - so maybe hard drive or fans are going bad?
It's summer here (hot 95 F / 35 C and very humid) - so maybe it's overheating?
Just wondering if anyone has any advice or if this is a known issue with a known fix for Dell PCs....
Here's my pc info:
