It probably fell onto the headphone jack and something got messed up there. That's a problem that you could maybe fix by taking it apart and reseating the button actuator. If it fell onto the button, it may have pushed the actuator farther into the phone. The button pushes down on another button inside that is part of the actuator module, so may have been pushed around.
When this happens it means that the whole recepticle has been broken off of the motherboard and the whole laptop will have to be disassembled. This is not an easy job for someone who hasn't done one before. After it's disassembled it has to be determined if the recepticle can be resoldered or not. Sometimes the damage is not repairable. Good luck!
If you are sure that your charger and battery are working as usual. The possible cause is the laptop lid switch.
If it is broken, you may have power but your screen may not come on. This is usually a little button or mechanism located close to the lid hinge that turns on or off your screen when your lid is open or closed respectively.Normally the operator does not push this button. These are fragile and broken easily on some laptop models. Sometimes these can be fixed,more often they will require replacements. If you aren't an expert repair person, get a technician to repair/replace it for you. Opening up laptops is a very delicate operation and much more difficult to repair than desktops. It may be worth it to spend the money for repair.
I just had this same problem. It's an easy fix. The "washers" that fell out aren't washers, they're the reason that the button fell into the unit. They are plastic "rivet heads" from the way the frame of the button is melted onto the cover. You can throw them away. I used super glue to re-attach the button to the cover.
