Check the CPU temperature in BIOS high temperature leads to auto shutdown of computer and open the case,see is your heat sink fan is working or not.

Ran the IDE drive diagnostics by pressing F12 during the Dell splash screen. Check for any error codes during the test. If it passed, then this is a software issue, you can either run a repair or reinstall windows.
