    A guy asked me to help him out with an older computer that another guy built
    for him from spare parts. Today after he booted it up several times it
    would shut itself off. Also the monitor didn't come on any of these
    times...but we could hear a click inside the monitor as if the power had
    turned on or off. Just off the top of your heads, what can I do to help
    him? He's running windows 98, and has no start up disk.
    thanks

    Replace the power supply for starters.
