OK so i have the Hp dv6-1238nr Entertainment notebook pc and i dropped it the other day and now it wont boot up. i can boot into the system recovery but its just stays at the blue screen and nothing comes up. im booting off ubuntu and trying to get my files and ect off but im getting

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: Error reading bootsector: Input/output error
Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.

can someone please help me

Allan is probably correct.

If nothing else, you could remove the hard drive from the notebook and attach it to another computer via an adapter to see if the drive can be read.
