My computer was running fine, no problems at all. Then i raged quite a bit while trying to configure wow and i gave my computer a love tap on the bottom left side of the computer. In other words i punched it, but not very hard. At the moment i punched it, it gave me a blue screen with an error code i stupidly didnt write down. I held the power button and turned it off like that. On the start up it asked me safe mode or regular mode. I chose safe mode. The starting windows logo popped up and after that, just a blank black screen. Normally this is when the login screen would pop up. Ive let it sit there to see if it would fix itself,of course it did not. When i restart it, it does the same thing again and again and again. When i run windows repair it gives me a error please unplug any portable music devices or camera you have in. I made a windows 7 recovery usb with windows repair on it. But even that repair gives me the same error. Im not sure where to turn now. My computer is of course a windows 7. ASUS 64bit. if there is anything else you would like to know just tell me. Thank you very much.

You might need to make sure the shock didn't dislodge any hardware inside the case. Open it and verify that all the hardware, expansion cards, etc. are properly seated in their respective slots. That's where I would begin.

It is going to be a hardware issue like House mentioned, you will have to look for dislodged connectors or damaged components. Let this be your lesson, I remember raging real hard at my dreamcast years ago, almost broke my super awesome little memory card/tamagochi lol!. At that point I decided it was no longer worth it to rage that hard against a game (damn you crazy taxiiiii), they are supposed to be fun.

Thanks both of you for the support but unfortunatly my computer is a laptop and ive been trying for the last half an hour to open it. They have very cryptic screws. Im going to have to wait to buy a new set of screwdrivers. Tricky bastards

Boot into BIOS and see if the HDD is still visible there. I have a feeling that you might have ruined the HDD with that shock, and now during Win repair it doesn't see the HDD, hence the other question.
I hope I'm wrong.

Most likely the hdd is broken. You can rage against a PC but definitely not with a laptop, even spilled coffee on the keyboard can cause serious issues. You may have even broken the motherboard or a connector to the screen or just about anything. The bottom left side could be housing the hdd or it might be the battery compartment or the network card.

If there is a disk in the cd/dvd drive remove it then try to boot.

Do you see any visible signs of cracks or indentations?
If the screws are those star like ones then the laptop is probably an Apple MAC and Apple MAC are not good with games.
Apple have done away with the star like screws for later models so your model is likely to be pre 2007 model, perhaps.
What make/model is the laptop?
