Check if the capasitors on the motherboard are "swollen" which would mean the motheroard is KAPUT. Check if there is a modem in the PCI slots which often shorts the motherboard (when it has become faulty) ... remove the modem. Try booting again. If not succesfull make sure the POWER SUPPLY workls correctly by replacing it with another working one..... If no joy... there are still one or two other options. Let me know If you still have a problem and I will give you more options to check on

Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.
I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers
take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose
If it is it will have to be re-seated.
If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)
DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.
You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.
DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are some basic instructions
Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.
If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

Had same sounding problem with a Medion PC myself. I don't know the cause exactly but the fix I have is this:
Switch off PC, switch off PSU and unplug the power cable from the PC. Then press the power button on your PC. You may see lights and fans start up for just a brief second. This is because there was still charge in the PSU's capacitors which we needed to clear out.
You can now plug the power cable back in, switch on the PSU and turn your PC on.
(I realise this is too late for the original poster's uses but others may find it useful when searching for a problem!)

Desktop fans do run constantly, you cannot avoid this.
The reason they get loud is because there will be a build up of dust on the fan blades.
To rectify this problem turn off the computer and remove the power cord from the rear. Then you need to remove the side panel from the base unit to expose the motherboard.
You will see that inside the case it is full of dust. Look at the CPU fan (the fan on the motherboard) also take notice of any case fans too, they are at the back.
To clean the fans and the case you can use a clean dry paintbrush or compressed air.
Once the inside of the case is cleaned you will see a noticeable drop in noise.

I don't think you can install 8gb of ram into that desktop. If the processor fan is too loud check it for dust or any other obstructions. If there aren't any try replacing the fan - it could be a bearing in the fan.
