HDD mount failure on Toshiba 351c copier

"HDD mount" means it has an internal hard drive (HDD, or hard disk drive), and the copier has failed to "mount" (place in operation) that disk drive. That error means that the internal hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced. It will very likely need to be a special proprietary hard drive, preloaded with some sort of operating system for the copier, and you'll need to get it from a dealer.

Dropped notebook, get only black screen, error loading operating system.

The notebook needs to be opened to see if the hard disk drive (HDD) has simply become detached from it's slot and slotting it back in fixes the problem. Alternatively, if the HDD has suffered shock damage from when it was dropped, a replacement HDD might resolve the problem but the Operating System, drivers and programs will have to be installed on the new HDD.
