Your hard drive was damaged when you dropped your laptop. Your old hard drive contained the Windows operating system files, programs and your data.
You need to install Windows on your new hard drive, and the laptop's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.
You need the Windows installation CD and the installation product code, this code is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop.
To install Windows on your laptop, turn on your laptop and place the Windows installation CD in the CD ROM drive and then reboot your computer and boot up the laptop with the Windows CD and follow the on screen instructions.
I suggesr you get a computer savy friend to assist you.

Ive replaced a stock spindle with a drop spindle on my 95 gmc sierra and i can't seem to get the rotor on the spindle far enough to put the spindle castle nut on?

just remove the spindle as it slows the speed of your engine thus making it to consume a lot of fuel over a short distance

The S-Air receiver for this unit DAV-HDX576WF cuts out when i bring it upstairs. Ive read that it should go alot farther. Please Help!

Most of the distance mentioned in ads and manuals are direct line of sight. As the number of walls between the transmitter and receiver increase the range keeps dropping drastically. Its not the distance but the obstacles that come in between that matter.

My computer died. It won't turn on. The cord works. It's an hp dvr6700. I was told it's probably the mother board by someone in a retail store. Should i buy a new motherboard and try yo figure out how to...

First off-- All your "INFO" is on the hardrive (Nothing to do with the Motherboard) which can be copied or reused if you replace the Motherboard-- NO INFO IS LOST--2nd if you dont hear any beeps or see any lights then yes its probable the MOBO--Did it Overheat? Did you leave it on a bed or something?3rd your best bet is to try Ebay for Motherboard or maybe another HP dvr6700 without a hardrive and then you can just pop yours in.. many options-- but changing a motherboard in a laptop is very tedious- many small fragile parts.

Adjust headlights

Find a flat area near a wall and drive up as close to wall as you can with high beam on. Mark the brightest spot from each headlight. Reverse about 10 feet from the wall. Measure the distance and calculate the drop based on the percentage label on the crossmember (eg 6" if 5%). Put a mark on the wall at the calculated distance below the original marks.

I recently dropped my HP Compaq Presario laptop V5209US and took it to Fry's electronics for diagnostics. I wasnt able to open the CD door after it was dropped. They told me it has a ''bad optical drive...

If everything else was working fine (until today) and just the cd-drawer would not open, a damaged systemboard (or motherboard) is highly unlikely.

1) What does "not turn off"? The Laptop or the CD drive?
2) To check what is exactly damaged you could power down the laptop and remove the CD drive entirely. Then power on the laptop. If everything works fine only your cd drive was damaged.

Dell has cheap chargers, the wire snapped on the inside underneath the rubber. My ex boyfriends charger had the same thing happen. You need to buy a totally new charger .

yes. did you drop it? i dropped my old samsung yh-925gs and the same message came up. i had to carefully unscrew it, and reattach the hardrive. it is easy, and you will see what to do. just take it appart, notice where the hardrive is, see the unconnected connection, and click it back together. it is surprisingly easy.

e0df163.jpg does it look something like the example I gave? Anyways, I don't think that it can be fixed. and you can either:
A.) have the screen fixed (approx. $100)
B.) buy a new calculator (approx. $85)
( the monetary figures are approxamate and should not be taken literally, the $85 is at least what I last saw one for @ a Wal-Mart)
