My MacBook Pro stuck at start-up screen after falling from desk.

My macbook pro(mid 2009) fell off the desk. No singnificant damage to the body. But it fails to start-up. It gets stuck at the apple loading logo with the circle spinning. Recovery HD also doesn't start. Unable to start from the snow leopord disk that came with the mac.

After reading from your websites I am going to open it up today.I just wanted to know what might be wrong with it such as RAM and else(I am no expert).It will be really helpful if someone could tell where should I look and what to repair when I open it up.

I think you have the right idea, try opening it up and see if anything's visibly wrong, it's quite possible the ram is unseated. However I do think it chimes or something when that happens, but volume could be a different issue. Also check that the hard disk is connected properly.
