Pull off the side cover and have a look. We can speculate all day long about something you can see in 2 minutes.

Pay attention to the CPU heatsink/cooler mounting as that is the first casualty with drops...........Sadly I know this.

As posted above. Take a look inside the computer and see if anything has come loose or unplugged inside. Were any of the cables stretched severely when the computer fell?
