Fan's squeaking?

My desktop is a Dell All-in-One and I believe it's about two years old.
It's fan started to go between squeaking and whirring pretty loudly a few minutes ago so I turned it off and got to the laptop to ask about it.

My main questions are
--about how much would/should it cost if we get someone to look at it?
--does it mean that the computer is messing up badly enough we'd need to get a replacement?

I don't know how to find what kind of fan it has or anything of that sort but I checked for this if it's any help:
--Dell Inspiron 19
--64 bit Operating System

If there's anything else you'd need to know, I'll try to find it for you.

If you can open it up, you could replace the fan yourself.

I don't trust myself to open it, unfortunately. I'm afraid I'd break something--which I hear is very simple to do on any computer. ^^;

Though that would probably be cheapest of all! Is it difficult to do this?

Thank you so much for that link! I'd always heard that Dell is a devil when it comes to needing special treatment, had no idea. XD
