Ac compressor problem

So what is happening is the ac compressor makes no noise if I leave ac off but when I turn ac on the compressor will start to spin maybe get half a turn then seize with the pulley and belt slips. after a second it will release for about another half turn the this continues over and over again with a really high pitch squeal. any ideas thanks

time to replace the compressor. Sounds like the clutch bearings are shot.
