Can you boot into safe mode or will it not let you get that far?

Well, how hard was it slammed? If it was real hard, it could be a number of things: inverter, a wire was knocked loose or two, the graphics card was damaged, or even the LCD was damaged.

Well that's either the drive is bad or the connection between the drive and system is loose/bad. This can be fixed hopefully by just removing and reseating the drive. If drive is already in solid then either it's the connector is bad or the drive is toast.
