you could try opening the thing up and seeing if anything got jarred or unplugged...but...without knowing what's broke..it's hard to find it

Thanks for the follow up. I was afraid that I would get that answer. He says that it doesn't really matter if I tear in to it because it doesn't work anyway. I may start on it soon. Any suggestions on what to look for?
Just about anything - loose or damaged : internal cabling, PCB components, cpu, ram etc. It may help if your friend knows which bit of the laptop hit the floor first, as this may give some indication as to where the damage is most likely to be, and possibly the type of damage you need to look for.
Before you do though, have you tried powering the laptop on without the power adapter connected (i.e battery only) & without the battery (i.e power adapter only)?
