✔ Best Answer
First off... Can you connect an external display to it? If so - then presuming the systems boots OK and you can switch the output to the external display you can then safeguard all your personal files etc - before proceeding further to replace the damaged screen; or find out why it's flashing. Quite possibly the ribbon connector has been dislodged at one end or t'other consequent of the fall?

Safeguard your files by copying to DVD at least; verify the copies too! Even better copy them to an external usb hard drive too; again check the copies... Ideally make both DVD and external hard drive copies.

Good to hear... I'd still safeguard "all" your files though; and make it a regular practice too - keep those external copies up to date...!
