Dell Dimension 2400 problem

I have a new problem with a Dell Dimension 2400 PC. Until yesterday or the day before, it was working fine, but today when I press the power button the light on the power button turns yellow instead of green, the fan behind the processor increases speed until it sounds like a jet engine, and the computer does not boot up. I cleaned out the dust in the computer so that is not the problem. Also, the fan was blowing cold air. Do any of you know what might be causing this and how I might be able to fix it?

Neither the power supply nor any particular component attached to the motherboard seemed to be at fault, and reseating everything did not help, so I concluded that it was a motherboard or CPU problem.
