Usually on laptops there is a key or key combination to turn off your screen, see if that turns it back on.

See if a hard reboot works

Ok. It came back on for a few seconds, then started flashing and then went black again!

The key combination is usually FN + F5, just look for the F number button that has a picture of a screen on it and try to see if that works.
Given that you only dropped a mouse on it its not likely to be any hardware/software issues.

EDIT: Most laptops also require you to be in windows before the FN combo works so make sure you're booted.

Try restarting the computer 3 times, then if the screen is still black try the key combo again.
