Dell Dimesion is going black screen and orange indicators

Specs: Windows XP, celeron
I have a Dell Dimension 2400 and am running windows xp. Recently my computer has started doing this odd thing. Started a few weeks ago and has been happening more often, and seems random but I'm not sure. No matter what i am doing (gaming,browsing, or idle) the computer suddenly goes black, and the front indicator lights goes to yellow/orange. The ABCD indicators in the back go to ABC all orange. i did some searching on this and found responses relating to the BIOS. could the internal BIOS/clock battery be causing this issue? if not, where else could i look?As far as i know the BIOS is up-to-date with "AO5"
