How come my laptop worked fine after I dropped it but once I closed the lid it would not work anymore?

Q: I dropped my Toshiba satellite L455D-S5976 by accident from about 3 feet in the air. I picked it up and it had a broken headphone jack, but it still worked. i woke up the next day to see if it turned on and worked, and it still did. Later that same day, i had closed the lid to go somewhere and when i opened the lid it was dead. I thought the battery died but it wouldn’t turn on at all. What could be wrong with it? plz help

    Dropping the laptop may have weakened something and closing the laptop finally broke it.

    Contact Toshiba and/or a local computer shop about repair options.
