Question about Acer (91.97420.A14) Micro ATX Mini-Tower Case
It constantly makes a funny noise like a clicking and turns itself off and on, When I first turn it on it usually stays on for a little bit until it warms up then it constantly goes on and off. Also do you know where I can download a manual for free?
It sounds like your processor and/or motherboard may be having some overheating issues. If there is anything valuable on that machine, I would definitely bring it to your nearest PC service center ASAP, as overheating can cause a plethora of other issues very quickly!

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards
first clean your computer of dust you could use a vacuum cleaner but not with a metallic pipe it might short out if it touches something inside the computer
use a plastic pipe one
run the chkdsk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive another way of running the chkdsk utility

have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
check all power and data leads that attach from motherboard to your hard drive for secure dust free connections if it's a 40 pin flat ribbon type ide this will be the first to fail
if its a clicking sound you might have a dirty hard drive the clicking noise is the reader arm jumping across platters on your hard drive
