Dropped the My MacBook Pro 1286 will not boot

Dropped the My Mac from about 2feet. Starts but does not boot OS. Heard a grinding sound on initial pickup after drop but did not have time to troubleshoot it at that time. I will try booting with the disk later. Steps on how to isolate the issue would be greatly appreciated.

The place to start is by reseating both ends of your hard drive cable. You should be able to find them from this guide. Instead of just pushing on them I would pull them off and put them on again.
