well if its not booting then sounds most likely ur Hard drives head is grinding against the disk.
But buzzing... may sound like ur Power supply's fan stopped working properly and it overheated or even ur CPU fan. open her up and see if any fan failed if not then might be ur HD

What kind of motherboard? My guess is the problem is with the RAM. Take it out, blow out the slots, and put it back in and see if that helps.
