How come my computer will not turn on after dropping it a few feet?

by on January 18, 2011

Q: My little brother was holding my laptop and dropped it. It was a loud crash from like two and a half feet to the ground and now I’ve looked at it and there is no crack but it wont turn on. Can someone tell me how to fix it or make it work? I’m clueless!

    First check and make sure all equipment is plugged in correctly. (Battery, Power plug)

    If it is still not powering up there is a big chance there is damaged hardware inside the laptop.

    How old is the laptop? If it is new you can either try and warranty it out from the manufacturer or from where you purchased the laptop from.

    Even a small drop can cause damage to hardware or knock a cable or connection loose.
