AC unit outside starts up with a buzzer sound

When my AC unit outside (payne) starts up, it sounds like a basketball shot clock buzzer going off for about 4 seconds, then melows out. A minute later the compressor starts up and becomes very noisy with a surging sound. Any idea what might be causing these symptoms? thanks

bad compressor, capacitor, contactor...... Could be anything.... You'll need to open up the outdoor unit and check things out.
