Computer tipped over

Possible the pins on the cable connection from the monitor to the computer got bent or broken. I would suggest either connect the monitor to another known working system and see if it works. The other option is to try a known working monitor on the system in question.
Anyone know what might be wrong with my computer? Could something have broken and is there a chance that it will work if I take it in for a diagnostic to check the problem. What I'm trying to get at "is my computer broken for good cause it tipped over or can it be fixed"? Keeping in mind that I got tipped over and smacked against the tile.
It may also be possible that if it is a onboard video that the fall may have broken a solder point for the video on the motherboard.

Also, check and make sure the memory modules are fully seated and did not come lose and all cables are firmly seated on the system board.

Yeah as I said it may have broken a solder point on the onboard video. It's also possible as ztrucker stated the memory could have been knocked loose but I think you would receive memory error beeps then.
The screen works fine when I plug it into my notebook. So I'm thinking something must have broken in the motherboard I hope can be fixed.
