sounds like it may have been damaged when knocked over

Check all around the case and see if anything damaged

take the battery, and hold the power switch down for 60seconds

put the battery back and the charger

does it boot up - any lights or noise come on the machine
do you get the message to enter setup/bios flash on the screen at all

if it does not boot normally

try starting in safemode - as the pc starts keep tapping F8 - a menu should appear - see if you can choose safemode

any idea what was said on that screen

On Hps there a different ways to get into the bios as the PC starts - usually a screen comes up startight aways with the bios entry settings

the keys I have used on HP in the past are on of the following
