So the monitor light blinks....do you see anything on the screen at all, or is it blank?

Do you have another PC you can test this monitor on....or do you have another monitor that you can test on that PC?

Also make sure that the monitor cable connections are snug.

In that case, the power supply may not be supplying the correct voltages to the equipment. Unfortunately I don't know a lot in that area.

I would say it is either the power supply or motherboard. Do you know what the make and model of your motherboard is?

Try booting and getting next to the box and see if you can pinpoint the noise. If it is the power supply fan, it would suggest the power supply is having issues.

Sometimes computer fans can be loud.

It could also possibly be the CPU fan/heat sink. The fan could be broke/ clogged causing it to overheat and shut down. I've seen heat sink mounts break over time with the heat sink loose. You have the cover off, see if you can pinpoint the noise Make sure that there aren't any cables rubbing the fan(s) blades If you have a graphics card it might also have a fan
