I'm afraid it seems your CPU might have died.

Its strange that it fell when you were out of the room though, like it could have happened at any time...

That's pretty effed up. By battery type thing, do you mean one of the cylindrical capacitors? That might be causing a problem, or perhaps the heatsink created a short on the video card when it fell causing some sort of hardware issue. The most probable explanation though is that the CPU did indeed get fried.

Is there anyone who tells the whole truth in these kinds of things?
If I somehow manage to brake something and there still is warranty left I will say that it was working fine and suddenly while playing a game the pc shut down and didn't boot anymore. One of my friends did this, he broke like all of his parts, he ain't too good with computers lol. (well not all, just one psu, two mobos and one vid card. all this while putting up one computer, he got the first set of parts in april and got the pc working like 2 weeks ago. He had it working for sometime, but then he increased his vid card voltage and it fried. Then he got it working again. Then he tried to update the BIOS of his mobo, no reason for this, he just wanted to update it. Well as u can gues he destroyed the mobo. Again out of action. And for now it's running quite... atleast for a week or two.)
I don't know how many parts he got covered by the warranty, atleast the psu and the first mobo. Don't know about the other parts.
