The system boots up fine, I can work on it without any problems, but as soon as I move the laptop the screen goes blank and the system locks up. This is baffling, as all diagnostics show nothing is wrong with the hardware, but the slightest movement kills the machine.

try going into the BIOS of your system upon powering your laptop as soon as you see your Dell Logo keep on tapping f1 till you get a different screen or if the system beeps when you tap on f1 then stop it should boot into your system BIOS and give you options,
normally for dell it should have a phoenix BIOS try setting your bios to defaults then save and exit the bios if still it does not fix you issue then you can try reinstalling windows and its drivers .
Well its impossible to restore any of todays laptops without their factory os dvd/cd. You could setup new operative system and make your laptop simmilar to what it was on factory settings, or you can search dell to send you that same cd/dvd on your post mail to your house.
I suggest you read http://www.dell.com/ and contact them in order to solve your problem. Hope i helped you! =)
The MOST likely senario that I've seen with similiar indications involved a hard drive that is slow to spin up to speed. Hence why multiple attempts, with the drive not coasting to a full stop between attempts, the drive finially makes it to operating speed and the system boots.
