    You may have to open up the tower and check the wiring connectivity behind the shell (Tower container removed). If not advise Dell under warranty and tell them your unit is faulty.

    As for your onboard data you can always take your tower to a data restore shop where they can save to an external store.

    Unplug all power connectors then press on the power button for at least 10 secs. Open the case and do these things http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial118.html#cleaning . You might want to give us additional info about the system specs. And, remove the round battery found on the motherboard then put it back after 30 secs.
