I built a computer about a year ago and now it's not working properly. It freezes on me occasionally so i have to turn it off manually. When trying to turn it back on, the fans work (cpu, case, psu) and the led's light up in the front. The red led (which i think is for the hd) then procedes to blink and there is a clicking noise. However, the computer doesn't boot... any ideas?

Btw, i have an athlon xp 3000+, 512mb ram

Overheating? check the temps of your CPU and graphics card.
