I recently dropped my laptop, and it froze, then told me to restart it the first it if this was the first time (witch it was). Now it makes an weird noise after turning off. When turning on it also makes a noise, a beep that lowers in loudness, then repeats itself..and when the bios loads it shows:
for Realtek rtl8139(x)/8130/810x pic fast enthhernet controller v2.16 (041224)
Pxe-e1: media test failure, check cable
Pxe-mof:existing pie rom.
Operating system not found

Sorry, it's kinda hard to type on this I pad.

The fall broke your HDD, it has failed and needs to be replaced.

the media test failure is just your laptop trying to connect to a server VIA LAN, (Used quite abit when company's want to image laptops for speed)

I agree with the above comment your hard drive has been damaged :(

Please post Hardware Specifications of your computer.(Including Power Supply!).
