Its probably a fan on your video card, assuming your laptop has one. My laptop does the same thing until it warms up, but it doesn't do it at intervals like you describe. The only way to make it stop is to replace the fan. You might also try a can of air; it may need to be cleaned.

If you think this is something you could take on, and depending what fan needs to be replaced, this is a project that shouldn't be too difficult. All I have to do on my laptop is remove one panel to expose the video card fan. Its just 2 small screws and a plug from there.

You will have to get the replacement fan from the manufacturer, though. It won't be something you can get off the shelf at Fry's.

Depends what fan it is. If its a processor fan, you might be stuck replacing the motherboard. This would be rather expensive, though.

I had an HP laptop once and I was able to find a document at hp.com that detailed how to dismantle the laptop. That would help help you with the repairs. Don't know if samsung has something similar at their site, but you might try poking around in their support section.

The buzzing stops when you unplug the power cord?
