I hope soemone can help. I have a Dell 2400. I was on the computer when it suddenly shut down. So I waited a little while I attempted a restart on restart I got a black screen that said "shutdown due to a Thermal Event" I pressed "F1" to continue. The computer did not come back up and shut off again. I attempted again, but nothing. So, I opened the computer. I cleaned it out and attmepted ot restart. I plugged in the computer and saw the green licht on the motherboard. When I powered it, the fan came in and lights flashed, but it immediately shutdown
Any information will be appreciated. If you need more information, just ask.

Could be bad computer case fan, CPU fan, loose CPU and/or CPU heat sink, dirty/clogged heat sink and fan.

Check motherboard for bad capacitors too:

Just another stupid saying...
