My mate rang me to say that he's got an atx motherboard but a P4 case (dunno what that is). He's got a PCI video card. When he starts it up he gets a flash of LED's but then it dies. And he says that the monitor looks like its gonna come on but it dies in the arse. He's got 256 mb ddr ram and win 98. need more info?

I'm assuming that you're asking what the problem with his system is

.....based on what your saying it could be almost anything

crappy power supply
toasted component
system short
bios settings

take your pick
