Hi there is on the motherboard a reset switch or remove the battery ahd you will see a set of jumpers named, reset. reset this and reinstall your battery, to see if that works, does the fan that works come from the mother board.
Of course its a good idea to install a new motherboard, get a new one and you get the manuel and start up disc with it.
You can put your hard drive into another computer, but check first that it has enough memory, and up the ram.
Again remove battery and reset mother board then when you put the hard drive in and turn it on, windows xp will find and install itself.
I hope this helps you.
