Turn off your computer, if your familiar on how to open-up you CPU do so, then,
Try cleaning the fan.
What you can do is clean it with a bush (ex. paint brush-a clean one) or a clean cloth.
you can also try to remove the fan then at the center of the fan there's a sticker, you can safely peel it off then you will see the center of the fan, you can apply machine oil on it, then put the sticker back. Then turn on your computer, let's see if you still has the problem :)
I know that there are many of these types of system boards out there, What I would do is contact Tiger Direct either in Canada at www.tigerdirect.ca or in the US at www.tigerdirect.com and send the sales team an email [email protected] - They will usually find anything that you need and have very quick and reasonable shipping rates.
its not a standard diameter for a pentium4, ime not sure of the diameter as dell does not list it and the actual fan is on the case , ported to the pentium4 cpu covered with a heat sinc. Your best bet is to physically measure it or take it with you when you buy a new fan. If you have the outside dimentions ,the correct screw hole pattern and it fits under the plastic shroud, you have the correct fan..
First you need to tell us which fans are the loud ones you are talking about but normally it is the cpu fan. Any computer parts store should have various fans available for different chipsets.
This link will take you to a page to find a fan. You will probably have to get the model number off your current one to find an exact match
