When I turn on the computer, it starts for a second and then stops. Before it stops, a screech is heard and from the CD drive. I unplugged the CD drive. Now there is no sound but still the pc does not start.
I checked the smps with a paper clip. It works perfectly. Could it be the motherboard? Help needed here. It's rainy season too. I hope it's the humidity or something.

There could be something wrong with it, not necessarily with rest of system, keep it disconnected until you check PSU properly.
I did. The sound is gone but the problem remains. Is it possible there is a short anywhere inside the case? I have a front USB port which when copying files made static noise.
