The model numbers are so far apart, there's 700 digits between and with each of those probably 2-3 sub models (1800a, 1820a/b/c 1900, etc., 2490a, 2490b, 2500) and since then, probably 7 years ago, even memory has changed so I doubt they are the same motherboard. Your motherboard should have a name printed on it in white ink, plus you can probably search google for keywords such as
Dell 1800 motherboard
Dell 2500 motherboard
and find your answer or look for replacement parts online, with a goal of finding the motherboard brand & part number.

If you go to you can select your systems or have your systems scanned to see if memory is the same. It might even tell you what motherboard, but it's doubtful.

There are also programs that can scan your system and tell you what components are installed, but all in all, looking at the motherboard yourself is the best way, and without a doubt, will leave little chance of incorrect ID.

Dell 1800 poweredge when I press the button does not start, I can see green light on one of the display. what cause not to boot up?

you might want to check the power supply unit first, as it is very common for them to burn out and not supply the correct power to start up the server..
the 2nd thing i would do, is do a visual inspection of the motherboard , looking for any traces of burns, if any are found, replace the server.

yes you can do that but you need the drivers for the scsi interface. when you install windows xp (for example) i think you may have to press the f6 key on the installation to add these drivers.

High pitched noise red light blinking

A high pitch noise comes normally from blown capacitors from the motherboard or the power supply. But mostly high pitch noise comes from power supplies.

You could have to open up the power supply to see them.

Verify if it is the case and replace the faulty part.

Dell server poweredge 1800 frequently shutdown

is there an error message that appears? can you check error logs? I need more information to be able to help you. I would first try to blow dust out of the fans, as it may be over heating, another possibility is that there is software on the machine that is causing it to shut down.
