so a bit ago I dropped my laptop by mistake and since then by laptop has acquired a couple "quirks". For one, the laptop draws too much power from the battery, but the more important question is that the laptop now vibrates violently, and has said the hard drive failed twice, but with a swift reboot goes back to normal. any fixes?
