Exclamation 94 Civic with constant high pitch humming in front end....

I just got this Civic today. I know nothing about it other than the normal specs. It has a strange humming noise coming from the front end (driver's side). If it were in the rear of the car I would think it's the fuel pump - thats what it sounds like. It's constant and gets worse with use of power (using headlights for example). It almost seems like it's coming from the belts/alternator/pumps area... but when you put your head down to listen it literally sounds like it's coming from the corner of the car.

It does have a bad battery in it. We were able to jump it and drive it home, but the battery didn't charge and wouldn't start once we got here (may be part of the problem??). This car has also been sitting for upwards of 4 years. It started right up, but has this noise. It has also been very slightly wrecked in the same area as the noise (the bumper and blinker light is busted).

Give me some ideas people. I'm trying to fix it up and sell it and I don't know where to start with this noise - I don't trust any local mechanics to work on my vehicles unless I already have an idea about what's wrong with the vehicle - and I can tell them what to touch and what not to - too many crooks around here.

1st off you need to start with a complete tune up! Wires, plugs, filters, fluids, BELTS. Check pulleys for looseness etc. Where are you located? Maybe Ill buy to use for parts
