    The squeaking noise I have heard before on a few pcs, i think it is something to do with the switch-mode circuitry on the motherboard, does the hard disk turn on at all??

    remove everything except MB, memory, graphics card (if no internal video) and power supply


    Make sure stand-offs are properly emplaced and protected from grounding out (use the cardboard washers that came with the MB), most newer motherboards have grounding out built in and therefore washers aren't required.

    please no need to try and avoid site links. It's too hard to read....

    If you still got problems either your power supply is fried or your motherboard.
