We have about 20 Dell Dimension 4700’s that occasionally get Thermal issues and shut down. Sometimes it can take up to 10 tries to get it to turn back on. The machines are not hot and the problems show up intermittently of about 20% of the computers. How can I fix or prevent this from happening? It does not shut down in the middle of work but makes it difficult to turn on causing workers grumbling.

Software/Hardware used:
dell dimension 4700, windows xp
