At the top of this forum is a sticky post with many entries. Try the generic reset.
The most common fix for a dropped laptop is a new motherboard and sometimes a new hard drive if the bounce was while it was on. What may discover is that a new laptop is cheaper than repair.
I dropped my laptop from my bed (no more than 2') and now it wont come back on. It powers up and goes to the re-start screen like you did not properly shut it down (where it gives you two options to: one is recommended & the other states to start it normal). At this point my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1500) so called freezes and will not go past this point. I did a system assessment and it came back with error code 0142. Please help. Is there any way I can fix this myself.
