It's probably cooked from the impact. Replace it.

Get a hard drive fitness test from the manufacturer of the brand hard drive you have. Burn it to disk and boot to that disk to determine if there is any hope for your hard drive.

The slightest drop can kill a mechanical HD. Turn the laptop on with your head next to it and listen to see if you can hear the HD spin up, and if it does, listen for clunking noises and/or spin down of the HD.
