I've got a Samsung X05 centrino laptop with 512mb of ram and when i scroll through itunes or close or reopen windows it does a weird buzzing noise...

very odd.

Sounds like you are definitely picking up unwanted stray RF signals and this could be difficult to locate.

Wireless peripherals like keyboard & mouse used to run somewhere in the 20MHz band but I would think it
more likely your sound card could be picking up radiated noise from something in close proximity such as an older fax /modem card if you are on dial up.

You could try rearranging your PCI cards to see if this helps.
