WHAT ABOUT IT SHUTTING DOWN IF YOU MOVE IT OR TAP ON IT? I heard Dell claims it not repairable and what to soak you for another mother board

Chances are you DVD drive failed - test below will determine if it is the drive or the controller on the motherboard.
=======================================
Remove DVD/CD ROM
Remove Battery
Remove Harddrive

then...
Try pressing and holding the f12 key when turning on and doing the diagnostic. It may show where the failure is.

Without the windows xp installation cd there is not much you can do, but if you have it... you can do this.

REMEMBER: all this is considering you have a normal computer, with a normal system and your hardware is not damaged.
Your problem is very generic and the information you are providing is very poor...

boot with that installation cd
let windows xp installation start and when it prompts you to choose between installing or repairing by pressing "R" key, choose this second one and wait till the system shows you a black screen with some lines of white text on it.

you will be now able to write on that console DOS like... type this three commands and when the firsts two ask you, choose YES.

1. fixboot
2. fixmbr
3. chkdsk

the last one will check the hd and will tell you if you have problems in that hd... if it shows problems, after this, you should replace HD so...

after that just reboot your system and see if it works...
TIP: BOOT UP WITHOUT ANY THING BUT KEYBOARD AND MOUSE, disconnect printers, scanners, any usb dispositive, just keyboard and mouse...

if not give me more info on this please.

They aren't hard to replace. If you can find one on eBay, get it and use the on-line manuals from Dell's web site. They are very clear and easy to follow.
