Sounds like the Hard disk drive has taken a big knock. Very little you can do if that`s the case. Bite the bullet I`m afraid and get some expert assistance.

You may be covered for accidental damage on your house policy or if it was bought perhaps on a credit card insurance if it was bought recently.

Absolutely no point in trying to fix it yourself. Take professional advice.

It could be something as simple as the memory jarred loose.

There may be a flap on the base under which there is a memory module, remove and refit it and try to reboot.

Remove the hard drive, two screws does it at the side then put it back in and try it
