After you drop something on a laptop you have to suspect physical damage to the motherboard or most likely the hard drive. Hard drives are very sensitive to g-shock. Most hard drives shut down when dropped to avoid this damage. But, you dropped the iPhone on the laptop. Which also subjects the hard drive to g-shock. The good thing is - hard drives are easy and relatively cheap to replace.

Just say "Dad the laptop quit".

Good Luck
