About 7 months ago my Dell Inspiron 11 3147 was dropped on it's left side, after dropping the screen went black and had to be restarted since then when being moved or held on that side it will sometimes freeze the screen, goes completely black or freezes with a noise ringing out (not really able to describe it so sorry) each time I have to force restart it, it does work okay on a day to day basis only when moved does it become a problem with the freezing or black screen.
I was hoping if I could get an idea as to what is wrong and if it worth fixing.

Could be a number of things since it was dropped. Loose hard drive, fan, some connector inside, etc... Open it and go though it, or have someone check it. If you can't do it yourself, find out how much you will be charged and decide if it's worth it.
