If it was running when dropped, might get a new one. The hard drive may have physical damage to the head / platters as well as the display.
You can remove the drive and test it.

"Any suggestions?"

You mean other than to buy a new laptop? How about taking to a shop to have it looked at? A damaged hard drive will prevent the system from booting into Windows, but it shouldn't prevent the HP splash screen from being displayed.
