First of all, try testing to see what is producing this "loud" noise.
It probably is the hard drive since they tend to do this.
It could also be the fan that is broken or dirty or something else.
Try unplugging the hard drive, turning on computer, listen for noise.
Keep doing until you find your problem, then we can see more in detail how to fix that problem.

Well, can you go inside your hard drive and get files/etc. ?
Does it like lock up and reboot the computer when you try or anything of this kind?
If nothing like this happens, then your hard drive is most likely healthy.
Maybe it is just an old hard drive that needs replacement.
You can always take it to some local store to see fixing.
But this usually requires to be opened, looked at, etc.
Meaning I can't really tell you what to do over posts.

Get a new hard drive and use Norton Ghost to transfer everything over. If you don't wanna bother with Ghost, just take it to a local computer store.
