may have damaged the motherboard on impact without breaking anything off. best bet would be to take the laptop apart and visually check for that kind of damage. should be taken to a repair shop, not done at home
do u have the power adapter plugged in, or are you using battery power? the first thing i would try is disconnecting the battery. just compleatly remove it and set it aside. then try starting it with the adapter plugged in. sometimes the batteries go bad and are corrupt. i had this happen to a compaq laptop a few years back. after i got rid of the battery it worked fine. if it works u can always buy a new battery.
