First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.
Hard drives do not like being dropped even inside a notebook. It is a sure way of destroying a hard disk. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer.

You have problem at the boot sector of the disk. Maybe it's hardware problem (controler, disk) or maybe it's a virus. Shut down the system and try start it up after some minutes. If it start up make a full back up just in case ......
This Stop message, also known as Stop 0x24, indicates that a problem
occurred within Ntfs.sys (the driver file that allows the system to
read and write to NTFS drives).
Resolving the ProblemDisk Corruption.
Corruption in the NTFS file system or bad blocks (sectors) on the hard
disk can induce this error. Corrupted SCSI and EIDE drivers can also
adversely affect the systems ability to read and write to disk, thus
causing the error. Check
Event Viewer for error messages from SCSI and FASTFAT (System Log) or
Autochk (Application Log) that might help pinpoint the device or driver
that is causing the error. Try disabling any virus scanners, backup
programs, or disk defragmenter tools that continually monitor the
system. You also need to run hardware diagnostics supplied by the
system manufacturer. For details on these procedures, see the owners
manual for your computer. Run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and resolve any file system structural
corruption. You must restart the system before the disk scan begins on
a system partition. If you cannot start the system due to the error,
use the Recovery Console and run Chkdsk /r. rate me if you think its fixya...
Re reading your question I am going to assume that you get a disk read error on boot. That tends to indiacte that either your disk has been damaged or the data has be corrupt for some reason.
You can either get some kind of disk repair utility such as spinrite (http://www.grc.com) and see if that helps or you can take the drive out mount it in another machine and copy your data off, before attempting a recovery on the disk.
