Old CRT monitors have old flyback transformers, which emit an audible (for some at least) sound in the frequency that they are running. The horizontal sweep frequency on low resolution modes can be in the upper range of human hearing. Nothing magnetic about it, just plain old sound and some people having slightly better high frequency hearing in their youth.

Don't worry, that annoying sound will go away once you're in your twenties, or you've gone to a few rock concerts.

Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and think what nobody else has thought.
