The 'drop' wasn't as much of a drop as a slide with the USB deconnecting. The table it was sitting on only had about 25-30cm in height, and below it was a soft carpet (not pillow soft, but brand new and thick soft), plus that the fall was slightly cushioned by its own short USB chord that got unplugged right then. It's not the first time it's been suddenly unplugged or jostled (I have to carry it around, but I always wrap it up in towels and other soft clothes and make sure it sits as unmoving as I can make it). This time it was connected to a laptop that got dragged around a lot.
I had been downloading two torrents that had a combined speed of <150kb when this happened and had various files open, but idling. It had been accidentally unplugged while downloading much bigger torrents before (and I blame laptops and people who can't leave them be), but the torrents always just stopped. It isn't the first time it slid off this stupid table either, but nothing happened before.
Also, the buzzing sound sounds a lot like the buzzing of a failing fan (or this might just be my last hope speaking). It also stops if I move it (like, pick it up) or give a light slap against the ventilation holes region, but starts again as soon as I still my hand or pt it down.
I'm almost panicking and desperately hope that it's a problem than can be remedied. Please help me
