Other electronic device in home.

Bad connection in home or other power system.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

We have no idea from the information you have provided so far whether you have a laptop or netbook computer, or a desktop computer, or if you have a desktop computer whether it's a generic system or a brand name system.
The possible causes of your problem vary depending on what type of computer you have !

"Tell us what the make and model of the computer is ..."

Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.

The specific model of a brand name system is often shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site and loading a program they have available, if Windows is still working, on the subject computer.

If it's a Dell computer...
Go here for how to find the Service tag "number":
http://support.dell.com/support/top...

Tell us what it is.

If it's a HP or Compaq computer.....
Go here:
http://partsurfer.hp.com/search.aspx
Scroll down a bit.
Look for the similar label on the outside of your computer.
Quote the specific model number - that's at the end of the first line.
Quote the Product number - that's on the third line.

If it's a Lenovo computer
Find your specific Product number and tell us what it is:

Finding my product number

The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.

"loud buzz/hum every few seconds"

"I hear it thru my speakers, in every page I go to."

Too vague.
Insufficient information.

Describe the sound in other words.
E.g.
Does it sound just like something ?
Does it sound like a Windows error sound ?

Which pages ?
Does it happen only when you're on internet, or for everything in Windows ?

Do you hear the sound only when you change pages, once, or does it happen more than once after you have changed pages once ?

RIGHT click on the speaker icon in the taskbar lower right, you may need to click on < at the left ends of the icons there to reveal the speaker icon, select Open Volume control, Mute the sound.
Then "change pages" - do you still hear the sound ?
(If you do, it may be fainter.)
