i have a dell dimension 2400, i've had it for about almost 4 years...up until a week ago this has never happened to me before, i keep my computer clean as a whistle as far as spyware or viruses, i don't see what could be wrong...heres the situation...

my computer has shut itself off twice in the last week, and my power light keeps flashing after it has shut itself off, there is absolutely nothing i can do to turn my computer back on unless i go and unplug it, wait a few seconds and then plug it back in...my moniter won't even turn on after its shut itself off!....could my computer just be getting old and going bad?...nothing seems to trigger this strange thing...

This could easily be a heat problem caused by a fan not working or dust on the CPU cooler, both easy to find and fix. Take the side cover off and you may need to remove a cowling to get to the CPU cooler, then check those items.
