    Hit laptop now it runs slow


    So last night I was playing Dark Souls II on my Toshiba (Satellite C855) and got a bit angry and ended up hitting my laptop on the bottom right corner. As soon as I did this it immediately shut off, so thinking nothing of it I turned the laptop back on but this time it was very slow. Frantically I tried to open the laptop try to see if I broke anything, but not know a whole lot about computers I failed to see anything. <br>
    <br>
    Does it need to be repaired or can it been a system problem?<br>
    <br>
    <br>
    Thank you

    With a laptop there is not much you can do - if you have more than one stick of RAM one might have popped from the clip - make sure they are properly seated.

    Better run a check disk on that drive too. Open "This PC" from the Desktop -> Right-Click on C Drive and select "Properties" -> Tools -> "Check This Drive for Errors"

    Most likely messed up the hard drive. Elevated command prompt run chkdsk /r will take awhile, even hour(s).
