Hi there.
The machine has probably suffered shock damage, remove the battery and leave if off with no power connected for a few hours, then try to boot the machine on AC power only.

Good luck and please post back with the results

    Hi again.
    The boot order has been changed and it is trying to boot from lan, (ethernet port) Press F2 while the computer is starting, this will get you into the bios, check in there to make sure the shock damage hasn't knocked out the hard drive, if the bios shows the primary hdd then look at the boot order and choose the hard drive as first boot device, save and exit the bios, the computer will restart and boot from the hard drive.

    good luck

How can i reboot my labtop

Best way that works for me is to unplug your wall adapter, turn the unit over, and remove the battery for about five minutes.
This allows the laptop to fully de-energize and restart after replacing the battery and plugging the adapter back in.

I need a boot disk to reboot my labtop but i dont have one because it did not come with the labtop

in that case there must be a recovery partition on the disk - the first screen that appears when you turn the laptop on will tell you what key to press to access it - then just select to recover your laptop and follow the procedure.

Dropped labtop when turning it on says system not found what do you do

Well most likely the IDE/SATA connector dislogged when you dropped it. You will need to find the 2 screws that hold the HD Caddy in place take them out pull the HD out and look for damage there. Replace the HD back into the hole all the way and try reboot.

My labtop mouse just stopped working. I rebooted

Unplug it, count to 10, plug it back in, count to 10 and it should work.
If not, try it in another computer.
If it doesn't work on either computer it is defective.
