Question about Cars & Trucks
Kinda sounds like a bad wheel bearing, but can't really give you a good answer without more info, type of vehicle, year, well maintained? stuff like that and maybe an aproximation of where the sound is coming from. also if your car has some damage from an accident or something, it could just be that sweet spot in the speed where it makes noise. Good luck and dont be afraid to ask for more help.

The whine sounds like the power steering or the alternator, as far as the idle issue goes try this clean the intake throttle body and idle speed control valve with carb spray, disconnect battery for 5 min. then reconnect and drive a few miles to reset idle strategy. The car will try to die when you spray the intake, hold the idle up to prevent that, use at least 1/2 the can of carb spray.

all power windows work from the driver's arm rest control however,
all of the other arm rest power window controls do not work separately
on their own.

Bad bearings could indeed make the noise you are hearing. Are you hearing it only at certain speeds or all the time no matter how fast? CV joints won't make that noise, they will click when you turn your wheels if they are bad. How long have you been driving your car with this noise...if it was just recent then I doubt the transmission could be it.
The best way to check the bearings is to jack up the front end of the car and put it on stands (put jackstands under the car and then lower it with the jack until it rests on the stand fully...NEVER EVER get under a car with it supported only by the jack!), then try to wiggle each front wheel by grasping the bottom and the top of the tire and then pushing and pulling (left hand at 12 o'clock, right hand at 6 o'clock then push with left hand and pull with right hand and vice versa), if the wheel moves at all, you have bad bearings.
CV joints can be easily inspected as well, while the car is up, take a look at the CV boots, these are protective covers that keep dirt out of your joints, they are rubber and are flexible. If you see any type of cracks or breaks in the boots, remove them and inspect the joints for wear; if the grease looks clean (no dirt at all in the grease) you can probably get away with just replacing the boots, but remember to re-grease the joints!
Check your transmission fluid for color and clarity; under the hood you should find two dipsticks; one os for oil and the other is for the transmission. The oil dipstick sits on the side of the engine and goes into the oil pan; the transmission dipstick will come up and out of the transmission; check the level and clarity by pulling the stick and looking at the fluid on the stick. If the level is in the normal range and the fluid looks red and clear, the transmission is fine.
Now, if you prove the bearings are bad, you could do them yourself but I recommend not to try it unless you have years of experience working on cars...I'm not trying to say you can't do it yourself but I am saying you should let a professional do this repair; those bearings take a lot of abuse and should be replaced by an experienced professional.
If you insist on doing this yourself, let me know here and I will walk you through the procedure.

Misalignment of the belt, incorrect belt, worn or loose tensioner, Too tight of an adjustment (many service centers do this on purpose so when the belt breaks in it becomes properly adjusted, I do not believe in this philosophy), The belt is actually one long belt called a serpentine belt.....
