Computer not Starting

Hi all,

My computer fails to start. I have turned it on the weekend and the fans start up however there is no display on the monitor and even the CD drives do not open.

After a minute or so it shuts down. I checked inside the case and it doesn't seem like anything else except the CPU fan and motherboard is getting power.

The PSU does seem to be making a slight grinding noise. Does this all point to a PSU problem? The computer is about 3 years old.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Yes, I think my first attempted remedy would be a new power supply.
