First of all - welcome to BC !
I would have thought that 30-60 seconds was not long enough for to cause a thermal shutdown. Have you tried getting into safe mode ? (Usually press F8 a few times while the Dell screen is showing at switch on). An alternative might be to try to boot from a light Linux install there are any number of these available - take a look in the Linux section - but the one I have on my desk as a tool is Puppy. You can get it here along with info on how to make and use the CD -
As last resort i baked mbo.
Do I take this to mean that you put the mobo in an oven to try to re-flow the solder ? This is a process I have heard of but never tried and I would regard it as a last ditch, nothing to lose technique and I suspect it probably didn't do your mobo any good.
Try safe mode or a self booting Linux.
