Recently my Power Supply has been making an unusual and loud droning noise, i cannot see any problems with it and it does not occur regularly, but sometimes when i start the PC it does. Can anyone think of anything that might be causing this, thanks for your help.

Not sure but the bearings in the fan may be wearing out. Have you cleaned out the dust with canned air?

I recently cleaned it out and it helped a bit, but it is still rather noisy

Well like I said the bearings are probably making the noise.

If you are capable and have the know how...
Your best bet would be to completly remove the PSU from the case.
Dust gets so clogged up in there that it's very hard to remove.
Once the PSU is out,do what Geekgirl said and use Compressed Canned Air to blow the dust cakes out...blowing in all vents.
Use a cue-tip to s****e the Fan fins and break-off what isn't being blown off.
