Have you tried an external monitor to see if the screen is faulty?
The fact that the DELL screen comes on shows that the bios is running. Try pressing F2 to get into the bios and reset to defaults.

It's asking you for a password to access the BIOS. You or someone entered a password to access the BOIS (setup screen). The original problem you're having is "Disk Read Error". If you have the CD's that came with your laptop, look for a Resource CD or any that has "Utilities and Diagnostics" under "Contents". This is a CD that you can boot from. Insert the CD and select <F12> on power on. Select boot from CD/DVD disk. If the laptop boots then your laptop is working but your hard disk drive or OS (Operating system software) is the problem.

I had the exact same issue that you are having on a older model dell i use to own, and unfortunately for me, the battery was just completely shot. That may be the issue with yours as well....:(

Dell laptop latitude x300 won't boot up


Your laptop hard drive is probably damaged from the fall. The reason why diagnostic test after memory fails is that it’s trying to load from the “Diagnostic Partition” which is located on your hard disk drive. You could try to remove and reseat the hard disk drive and see if that works, otherwise you’ll have to take the drive to a local computer repair shop to see if they can retrieve any data.
