Exclamation power supply makes grinding noise

My power supply has been making some kind of grinding noise. I thought it might have been one of my HDDs, but that proved false. The noise comes about for no apparent reason. When it does happen though, I just hit the back of my comp and it goes away. Any info is appreciated.
