Hmmm....perhaps take a can of air (air duster, etc.) and clean it out really good? Make sure that there is no dust in the fans, specially the cpu fan. It almost seems as if your fans are starting to spin but being restricted dirt etc. I have seen similar problems and this has been the solution. Pull the side panel off and clean it out really good, paying close attention to the fans (mainly the cpu fan).
While the side panel is open, check all the connections to make sure that everything is seated correctly. Loose connections are a pain, and can cause a variety of problems.
If this is not it, can you check the fans to make sure that they all work? Make sure that they all start to spin. Some computers wont' even start if the cpu fan doesn't work (happened to my uncle's Compaq). If this is the case, and there's a fan that's not working, replacing it might solve the problem.
If none of this works, post back and let us know, and we'll continue to try to help!
Hope this helps!
