How come my laptop will not boot up correctly after I dropped it?

Q: I dropped my Gateway laptop about a foot and now the screen looks like cracked glass, although nothing is cracked. It does not boot up correctly, only the broken glass looking screen. How can I fix this?

    Even though the laptop does not appear damaged more than likely a computer component was damaged. It could range from your hard disk drive to your mother board.

    Even though laptops are portable they are still fragile.

    If you have another harddrive to try putting into the laptop i would start there. But you may need to take it to a professional so they can look at the laptop and verify what may have been damaged.
