I dropped my computer today and now this screen is what I get when I turn on my computer. Upon further inspection, when I get to the boot priorities menu, it seems that my SATA HDD isn't being recognized, since it says N/A. I have no experience with computers, and I need help ASAP. Thank you!

Most likely you physically damaged the drive when you dropped it. You could try taking the drive out and putting it back in (I don't know if you have easy access to the drive via a plate on the bottom of the laptop), but I doubt that would help.
