Home window A/C loud buzzing noise when compressor starts

For weeks, my 5 year old window air conditioner made a loud buzzing noise when the cooling compressor kicked in - Then would be fine and cooled until it shut off silently - But then when the thermostat said it was ready to cool for the compressor to turn on, again the buzzing sound (like at the end of a period in a hockey game) - but Now, the compressor doesnt work, no cool air, but the fan works fine. I still hear the buzzing sound like it is trying to turn on, but cant.

Anybody know how I can fix this ?

It might be a capacitor. Please give us the make and model number of your A/C.
