Once upon a time . . .
I actually repaired PC supplies but only for some oddball PCs whose makers were too stupid to buy 'off-the-shelf' supplies from others.
There is a good possibility that replacement parts to repair one of these will cost more than a new replacement supply. You just cannot compete with people who earn a couple of dollars a day assembling them.
They aren't tough to repair if you have some technical skills but it just isn't worth it.
I'm pasting part of a post below I just did for someone else who wanted to know if the board could be damaged from a failing supply-
"Since there have been some changes in available outputs and connectors even on ATX supplies, make sure you compare pictures of the supply to your own but in any case, I would recommend using a replacment rated at 350W as this will run more conservatively and not be as stressed as the 250 you now have. It won't cost a lot more and will not consume any more power but the critical components will run cooler.
Not as a recommendation, just a current example on eBay:
The last couple I bought were $5 each with $7 shipping charge from a US source."

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
