Turn on Pc, Continually beeps 6 times then shuts down
I was moving my pc and dropped it on the floor from about 2 feet (onto carpet) then I hooked all the cables up and after turning the start button on all runs smoothly (seemingly) until the screen where you can press the Delete button. Then the problem occurs.
A continual beeping sound once a second every 2 seconds (or very close together) for about six times then computer shuts down. I thought it might have something to do with a screen or printer so tried it a couple of times with only power hooked to it and same thing happened.
Then I tried to enter the PC set up screen (pressed delete during boot up) and that prolonged the PC's ability to stay on for about 15 - 20 seconds.

You possibly cracked your screen or caused the ribbon cable to disconnect when you dropped it and just can't see what the error codes are saying. Is probably asking you if you'd like to start in safe mode with the beeps but you can't see it with a cracked screen or disconnected ribbon cable. Take it to a repair shop for a diagnosis.
That question has a yes and no answer. If the carpet does not create alot of resistance then probably not. The best way to describe what I am saying is if you can roll something that has small wheels like a microwave stand across the floor with a small amount of effort then your wheelchair isnt working too hard to move across that carpeted floor. If the carpeted floor is real soft and cushioned under your feet your chair will have to work a little harder. Any time you are not rolling on a hard surface your chair will have to work a little harder than it would on the harder surface.
If you just dropped it on carpeted floor there should not be a problem, unless you have a bad tablet. Try shutting the power down by pushing down the on and off button with the volume button at the same time. This may take a few moments but it should work, once it is shut off leave it off for awhile, the turn it back on and it may work for you.
Follow these steps to clear the password: NOTE: These steps also clear CMOS. 1. Shut down the computer.
If you are unsure whether the computer is off or in Hibernation, turn
the computer on, and then shut it down through the operating system. 2. Disconnect all external devices connected to the computer. 3. Disconnect the power from the computer by first unplugging the power cord from the AC outlet and then unplugging the AC adapter from the computer. 4. Remove the battery 5. Remove the real-time clock (RTC) battery 6. Wait approximately 30 minutes. 7. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer. 8. Connect AC power to the computer. Do not reinsert any batteries at this time. 9. Turn on the computer. All passwords and all CMOS settings have been cleared.
First try a different usb cable. The cable or the cable connectors may have been damaged as a result of the fall.
If that doesn't work and you are certain that your PC does not recognize the drive, then It appears to me that the fall damaged the delicate mechanical devices inside the drive and you will have to replace it.
Hard drives cannot withstand rough handling. If a hard drive is only dropped about 1 or 2 feet and it lands on a soft surface such as a carpet it MAY survive the fall. But if one falls from a higher elevation, (say 6 feet) onto a hard surfaced floor, it's almost a sure bet that the drive's internal mechanisms are permanently damaged.
To find out for sure, take it to a PC technician and have it tested. It should only cost you a few dollars.
