I went through the startup files, turning off a couple at a time and starting it back up, and it still didn't work. Then, I tried to do a system restore and that didn't take either.

It's starting to seem an awful lot like something is overheating. I haven't had a chance to open it up yet, and the Dell BIOS doesn't give me any temperature info. Tomorrow, I'm going to open it up and check the fans. The power supply one still blows the same weak stream of air that it usually does, but I don't know about the CPU fan. It's never made that much noise to begin with, so I can't say it's busted just from listening.
