Other than it being 5 years old and therefore 3 years out of warranty there is nothing wrong with the quality of the PSU, the prime suspect for behaviour such as this.
For you to do;
Tell us how exactly you cleaned out the computer.
Post Speedfan and HWMonitor screenshots for, for most accurate results do some gaming first, details below;
Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

Download then run HWMonitor and post a screenshot so that we have a comparison to the Speedfan results, details from here
