Stop punching or striking the desk.  The sudden movement is "rattling" your computer.  I once collided with my desktop on its corner, the next day, one of my two twin hard-drives quit.  Fortunately, I had great backups, only lost 1.5 days -- which I recovered with downloads and re-copies.

If your hard drive is a spinner thats a good way to crash it by hitting your desk. A spinning hard drive is extremely sensitive to external shock, but not near as much if it isn't spinning.

The Speccy didn't show any indications of a problem with the hdd.  There is a reader arm which sits above and below the platter.  It is extremely close to the platter, close enough that banging on the table may be enough to make the arm jump and strike the platter.  This can result in damage to the platter.  But if the operating system isn't having any problems you may have dodged that bullet.

 

If you are not having any problems as a result of this I would like to remind you of a old adage... if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

As a technical note, that SPECCY report says you have exceeded the shock level of the drive 698 times.  A running hard disk drive is 7 times less shock resistant than a raw egg!

Please tell us you are making routine full image backups of your OS and data partitions.

First, http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx  , download and install Macrium Reflect [free version].  Personally, I have two usb 1TB external platter-driven hard-drives for each computer.  If you're going to use any Cloud, at least have a "parallel" locked away external hard-drive.  Although we can walk you through this for the most part, it might be easier if you found a trusted local guru who could watch you over your shoulder, guide you through the clicks for making your first full images of your OS and data partitions.

And how do i check?

 

You can check the "system" event viewer for bad blocks on the hard drive.

DC3 said Speccy shows no problems with the hard drive but take note of what DavisMcarn said.

The shock to the laptop from hitting the desk can cause the sensors to partially activate, you know when you close the lid it goes to sleep? Maybe something like that happened? I had to disable those on my laptop as sometimes if I moved it just a few inches while it powered on it would go to sleep.

I have a customer of mine that sells heating and cooling supplies, I have seen customers come in with a large heavy fan motor that is bad and they want a replacement. They set it down on the counter (not so gently either) and all of a sudden the PC on the counter right next to where he placed/dropped the motor reboots after I see a flash of blue on the screen (BSOD). Now the file system is corrupt and we are getting unrecoverable disk errors and then it starts clicking loudly, new hard drive a reload is now in order.

Now the customer has learned to take the the motor from the customer and set it down themselves, very gently!!!

I mean it could be that. But it didnt flash a blue screen, it only flashed parts of the game. Almost as i was teleporting around the map. Also it didnt make any sounds.
