Default Hardware Problems

Hey, I have this high end gaming pc, and it has worked fine since I got it, but I dropped it, and now when I turn it on, it boots up , but the screen does not display anything. Also the power l.e.d. on the front pannel is ussually a solid light is now flashing like a strobe light. Do you guys have any ideas what the problem might be?

a very high probability that some where is damaged from the fall. check your system to see if places are damaged like a capacitor, a crack on the motherboard...... a high chance that you might need to replace some parts.
