Computer is doing a high pitched whine

Specs: Windows 7
There is a high pitched noise coming from my computer. Has been doing this as of recently. The noise is mainly on startup and calms down. When I go to the BIOS menu on startup the noise does not stop for the duration that I am on that screen.
I aired out both the power supply and the rest of the computer. I also stopped the processor fan to see if that was it and it was not, the noise continued.

So basically noise on bootup and sometimes in normal computer use like when scrolling around windows screens and on websites. Also sometimes in games.

Pretty sure it's not the hard drive because it's not from that area and I just replaced my old one due to thinking it was that. Screech continued with new one with old one completely disconnected.

well the only other thing i can think of is either the new hard drive is faulty or one of the fans in the computer is causing the noise.
