Default Toshiba Qosmio x305, huge problem!

Hey guys, I could really use some help. Okay, the problem is my wife had the laptop slip off the TV tray we use when we are in the living room. Now when I start up, the windows logo looks great but after that it flickers through some boxes all over the screen. Then it goes to a completely black screen. Where it sits there and doesn't try to reboot or do anything. There was one time where it powered through this part and it showed a windows desktop but there was huge lines of pink everywhere. I was thinking that it might be a hard drive crash or possibly the video card.


edit: I just restarted it in safe mode and it booted up. When I start up normally it does a blue screen of death and physical memory dump

In safe mode, do a memory test.

Might want to run "msconfig" as well, go to the startup tab, to see what programs start up when you go into normal mode.

I took the laptop apart completely, and maybe the ram was knocked loose. I disconnected every piece and redid it. Now its working, thanks for the help =)
