Unfortunetly sometimes with a fall of that nature you could have very possibly damaged the actual hard drive which if that is the case would require replacement of the drive.

Dell Studio 1555 laptop 6 beeps

90+ percent of the time - if a computer beeps - there's a problem with the memory.

Try pulling and reinserting the RAM modules - sometimes it's just corrosion on the contacts.

Dell studio 1555-power light comes on-can hear runnig-black screen- never boots up

generally if when you turn on the computer and do not see the Dell Logo then about 90% of the time it is caused by a faulty LCD/inverter cable/video card

Try running the PSA diagnostics byt holding down the FN key before turning on the computer. if the computer starts generating a series of beeps it would mean that the LCD is not working and can be caused by a bad LCD or a faulty inverter cable.

Another way to test it would be to connect the computer to an external monitor.

My dell Studio 15 notebook(studio 1555) is making a "boiling" noise every 15 to 30 minutes. what does the sound means?

Most likely the hard drive actuator arm. Some harddrives sound like a gurgle when they're running.
