    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

    <F2>, <F10>, <Del>
