Win98, XP? What kind? Laptop? Fans? Where is located relative to heat source? What activity when it stops? Just surfing? Anti-virus? Ad-aware? Message on screen? Recent changes to computer? Anything else on the same circuit?

If you bought this a few months ago, then it is still under warranty. Get on the phone and make Dell hole up there end of the bargain.

I agree with joed....sounds like a bad cpu fan but then again, computer problems can be deceiving.
