Hey, my sister accidentally dropped a stool on the corner of my computer. the corner is now coming loose, and it makes about 5 or 6 seperated beeping sounds before starting. it will start and the fan and all will begin to run normally, but my monitor won't show anyhting, despite it being plugged in. in the past, i have just held the corners together and pressed start, and it has been functioning perfectly.

unfotunately, my sister unplugged it instead of shutting it down and now it wont start up again. i have held it in every postiion possible.

PLZ HELP

ALSO, one of my computers was taken by a hacker and i cannot find my reformat disk. my friend has vista (all of my comps are XP) and he has his reformat disks. can i put vista on my computer, or will it just not work?

Assuming that we are talking about a laptop, I would have to say that there's a possibility of internal damage that you will only see if you take it apart
The stool possibly could have jostled the memory loose. Try re-seating the memory modules

can i put vista on my computer, or will it just not work?

Highly unlikely it will work unless your hardware meets the operating system requirements and you can find the correct drivers
Besides it sounds like you are talking about recovery disks and not a true operating system disk and that's only legal for one machine, anyways

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
