if its quite new, still under warranty, send it back, dont tell them it fell,
if not you can get a new screen quite cheap and fit it quite easily, but it may not be the screen, a connector, power, graphic chip, its hard to say what it may be.

if you take it too a pro he will charge almost as much as a new one..
so the choice is, pay or be brave and take it apart, make sure all the connections are good, pick up a second hand or cheap new screen and change it, you can find lots of videos to show you how do anything with a laptop on youtube...

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

If there is an image on the screen but very dim the chances are that you have damaged either the inverter that supplies power to the back-light or the back-light itself is damaged.

Either way a competent engineers will be able to fix it without having to pay the earth. It is even within the realms of DIY if you happy with pulling the laptop apart and have some idea of what you are doing.
