Sorry mate, from the sound of it, the problem can't be fixed by doing anything yourself. Try bringing it in to a computer repair store. It might be time for a new compuer.

when you droped it you definatly by all means knocked something loose in the monitor. If you didnt know you can damage all computer parts by dropping them only inches. A foot is another story. You will definatly need to replace the Screen,if your lucky nothing else was damaged. Back up all files right away.
