The screen could not work, that would be a little pricy to repair.

When I switch it on it comes up with a white screen which says it is downloading to disc then shuts down and bleeps so it seems the screen could be ok....

yes, you need to worry about the hard drive, and any cd drives on the computer too, being dropped will almost certainly damage them
