Noise While Booting

I have Windows 7 64 bit system. As the computer is in the process of getting to the desktop there is a little sound like (ber-donk). It only makes that sound once and only during boot. How can I find out what it is?

That very well may be the noise. I hadn't thought of that. I do have a wireless mouse and keyboard on that computer. Thank you.

PSU making noise!
My PSU just started making a noise, like if something's touching the fan. It's a different computer from the one in my specs. It's a sturdy black one, however this PC has no case and the PSU is positioned in a way that the fan is on top and sucks in air, so a lot of dust goes in. Since September it...
