Do you have a question? What do you expect from us? there can be many cause for that problem, can you give us more information? like the model of your computer, age, etc?

model - Dell GX 270 as stated in title
age - approximately 2003
cpu - Pentium 4 2.0 - 3.0 ghz
memory - PC 2100,PC 2700 DDR
recalled motherboard due to faulty capacitors

GX 270s had bad problem with taiwanese capacitors that would go bad
check your motherboard for bad caps
the X on top of capacitor will be bulging with yellowish fluid leaking out

also the other possibility is a bad power supply
with the age of that computer it is very possible the PSU went bad
would have to swap in another one to find out

I've dealt with those Horrible GX 270/260s.

Like King smp said - those motherboards have a massive problem with the capacitors on the motherboard. I wouldnt be surprised if your motherboard is toast.

I've dealt with, and had to replace many of those Dell GX computers, they were slow, prone to hardware failures, and generally not worth the money. It's best to get rid of it.

Hey the Dell Optiplex 740/745/755s are nice :)
Japanese made Rubycon caps

Dell learned their lesson from the GX 260/270/280 capacitor problems they
had

Dell is still in court fighting lawsuits from that

In all fairness HP and others also used those caps
