Sounds like something is shorting or a bad power supply.
Most likely unrelated to the Windows 95 issue though.
Maybe you'll be lucky and it may not be fatal.
I'd suggest removing EVERYTHING, and triple checking for anything loose inside your case. Screws, slot adapters, badly inserted RAM...
Then start small.
CPU, RAM and Videocard.
Then Disk, CD-ROM
After pulling cards I'm thinking maybe his motherboard is touching bare metal in the case too. Unless there was a cloud of smoke and visibly roasted traces on the board, it could be alright.
Sup. I like computers. Are you a computer?
