Q: I dropped my laptop today about three feet. It turns out without any problems but the case is cracked. What potential problems are there from this?

    Your very lucky if it is still working. Its possible that there could of been some hard drive damage done that your not aware of. That is really the only mechanical device inside of your computer besides fans. Make sure that you keep a close eye on it and listen for strange noises or if it seems to be running hotter than usual. Its possible that Fan Damage could of been caused as well. If it were me I’d make sure that I have a backup copy of my data.
