SOURCE: loose belt
If it is the belt, you need to buy a special tool made to relieve the pressure from the belt tensioner, As you do that the belt will slip off. Don't let anybody tell you that you can use a ratchet and socket to loosen the tension. If your tensioner is not designed to work like that, it will strip the bolt out. While you have the belt off, turn all of the pulleys and make sure that they are not the cause of the squeaking sound. Make sure to memorize where your belt goes, a serpentine belt can be very confusing to put back on if you don't remember how it came off.

You might have a dry bearing in the alternator. I've had a squeaking noise from them.

Testimonial: "thanks! the noise is not constant. it cycles with the rpm's. it like squeak-squeak- squeak and progresses as the rpm's increase."
