If you dropped the laptop, there is some sort of internal damage. My suggestion is that you dammaged the hard drive at least. There might even be more. You can either replace the hard drive and see if that is the fix, or take it to a repair and have them fix it and thoroughly check it over. My suggestion is take it and get it looked at for the exact source of dammage.

Operating system not found

Hi Jana, it is a common problem yes, your hard drive works like an old record player, with a thin needle reading off the hard drive platters where your data is stored. What most likely happened is the shock of the drop damaged the reading needle.

If it makes a clicking noise then you know your platters are having trouble spinning up.

You will need to replace the hard drive

Operating system not found , cos i took the hard drive cos after i tropped my laptop it starts to make noise and it wont start it tries to solve the problem but then it says windows cannot solve the...

Since the noise is associated with the hard drive and the system was dropped, then most likely you will need a new hard drive.
You can get a new drive at among other places then once installed, boot to you Operating System disc and reinstall the OS

Operating system not found

Ok, well either the drop has broken something on the motherboard, or, the hard drive, has been jolted so hard the heads have crashed into the platter, and killed the HDD. I would almost guarantee, that is whats wrong. Try taking out your HDD, hook it up to a USB, to HDD "Dongle" and see if your HDD responds, If it doesn't then you need a new HDD, if it does, the fault, is within the laptops circuits.

My Compaq Presario F700 dropped approximately 2 feet to the floor from on top of a suitcase at the airport. It was in a case, but not a thickly padded one. When I tried to use the laptop after the fall,...

Try reseating the hard drive and the RAM modules, the fall may have slightly loosen these components.
The error message "Operating System not found" means the laptop could not find the hard disk, this problem could be the hard drive needs reseating, a faulty hard drive (they don't like being dropped), or a faulty disk controller.
