I've just built my first PC, turned the power on and I got a very high-pitched whining noise coming from the machine, so I turned the power off again straight away.

Any ideas what this is? What should I do?

Lol, unplug your speakers and microphone. That's what I had a problem with. :)  But if it's not that, I would guess the HD.

Don't worry, I hadn't plugged the HDD into the PSU. Doh! :oops:

Could be the fan on the power supply. Listen closely to see if you can find the noise. PSU or mobo should be the culprit. HD clicks when bad
