Butterfingers... Computer Won't Boot Anymore

By interploy

  1. I accidentally dropped my computer while moving it the other day (it was about a foot off the ground). The computer boots and shows POST, but then I get a blank screen; no small cursor, no error message, nothing. I didn't see any cracks when I inspected the board, and my system doesn't sound any different when turned on. I'm not sure what might be wrong, but I'm afraid I damaged one or both of my hard drives.

    Reading in the forums, I found a solution of trying to boot from a floppy to recover the data or swap the master and slave drives, although because of what happened I'm not sure either will work. Does anyone have any other suggestions I could try to recover my data?
