if there is no physical damage and the computer was power on while it was dropped, it is very likely that the hard drive has gone.

what on earth is wrong? well... it was dropped. so it's not like a file was deleted or something. it is most likely that (as they have said above) the hard drive was damaged, physical damage. take it to the repair shop or something
 
with the power off and the battery out...make sure the ram and hard drive are seated. try booting into windows using f8 to see if you can get in. also try booting of a hirem boot cd and run some hard drive test tools. run hd tune and see if the dropping of the laptop cause a head crash and damaged the hard drive platters. if it did your going to need to replace the hard drive.
