I may be wrong but I guess that would be the HDD. Its the only major moving part other than the fans.

Try removing it and replacing it.

Reboot, tap repeatedly the F2 key to enter BIOS setup, see if the HD is detected.

Power down, unplug and hold power button to drain residual power. Remove HD, clean the contacts to reinstall. Removing Inspiron 2200 HD should be similar to this video:



If it starts copy out your data ASAP, then run HD maker's diagnostics/repair full CD scan from their Support Downloads webpage.

Find a replacement HD, run your Recovery DIsks or an XP OEM install CD for your version using the Product Key on COA sticker.
