Do you have a fan, washing machine, or other large electric
motor plugged in to the same circuit? If so, installing a UPS
with a power conditioner may help. (That would be an always-on
UPS, as opposed to one which has a relay to cut in a battery
when it detects low voltage. Power conditioning UPSs are more
expensive, but no other kind will help.)

If that doesn't work, call Dell.
