  1. It is probably the controller for the hard drive that broke. Does it power up at all? If the fall was very high it could be the controller and the hard drive that got damaged. The only thing you can really do is take it out of it's casing and either A) put it into another computer, like a desktop, or B) buy a new enclosure and try it in that.
  2. Did you drop it while it was on? If you did, there's a chance that you killed the HDD itself. However, you can't be 100% certain; I would try out what scorpinnock had suggested.
