Ok, well either the drop has broken something on the motherboard, or, the hard drive, has been jolted so hard the heads have crashed into the platter, and killed the HDD. I would almost guarantee, that is whats wrong. Try taking out your HDD, hook it up to a USB, to HDD "Dongle" and see if your HDD responds, If it doesn't then you need a new HDD, if it does, the fault, is within the laptops circuits.
