If it fell while it was on, you probably ruined the hard drive. Can you boot into safe mode? I would suspect not.

I don't remember for sure what to hit to go into safe mode... was it F8 or ctl F8? I've tried that and didn't work.

You ruined the hard drive. Get a new one or try another one if you have to check for sure if its the HDD
