other devices that attached to your system might have cause this probem i.e. floppy, cd-rom. for now, try to remove everything except the processor, mobo, graphic card. Reboot and listen if the annoying sound still ther. Then follow by placing back your hardisk as well. Make sure all your component is tightly intact. Proceed with ther rest of the component.
