In what sense does dhcp not work? can you connect to the outside world? If so
then you need to have an address assigned to the local computer and a default
gateway (look at the output of route -n). The default gateway should be the
router (although they sometimes have different address for router access and
network access, in these cases the router needs to be disconnected from the
external network to be accessed locally).

I seriously doubt that it's a harddrive in there, these things are usually
solid state. Could be a fan, but those are rare also (it's usually air cooled
with no moving parts).
