Specs: Windows 7
I had my laptop open & sitting on the floor. i picked it up w/1 hand & accidently dropped it. it fell about a foot up from the floor. afterwards there was a ticking noise coming from where the hard drive is located & the computer will not boot up any further than the first screen & wont shut down either. just keeps making the ticking sound & stuck in the mode as if it was aboutr 2 boot up but wont go.

Boot to a live cd or usb just to check all the other stuff.

I'd guess the hard drive also.
