Answers :

Don't like to disappoint you but there are so many possibilities for failure after being dropped, I don't think anyone here can help you without having your unit in hand for inspection.
\015\012
\015\012One thing you might consider doing yourself:
\015\012
\015\012You apparently have another computer available.
\015\012If it is a desktop, (locate one in any case), follow the cable from the monitor to the system box backside.
\015\012Not the cable that goes to the wall or powerstrip, the one that attaches to the system.
\015\012Detach the cable from the desktop's system box (should be two thumbscrews) and find the mating connector on your laptop.
\015\012Be gentle - the pins are fragile.
\015\012
\015\012Turn your laptop on and watch the desktop's screen for signs of life.
\015\012If you see anything recognizable (text, wallpaper, etc.) then your laptop has survived up to the screen section.
\015\012Ths means you could at least retrieve data from it so as not to lose your work.
\015\012
\015\012I don't recommend trying to peer inside your laptop, the cases don't always come apart easy and you may not know what you are looking at even if opened.
\015\012
\015\012Laptop repairs are not cheap or always lasting so you might consider getting your docs off of the machine or just buy a cheap monitor and make your laptop - a desktop.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck-
