It could well be Liam that your hard disk or memory has become loosened in the fall so simply turn the laptop over, having first possessed yourself of some, for want of a better word, jewellers screwdrivers, and unscrew both the Hard drive bay and the memory bay.

SODIMMS (laptop memory) are not mounted like the memory in a desktop and usually never come loose but have a look at the hard drive as it may just need a slight push to realign it.

Get back to us if this not suffice.
