    If it actually boots up be very surprised. Backing up your data is a good idea, do it while you can. Obvious damage would be a cracked screen, cracked or broken case. Clicks from the hard drive. Lockups, freezing, failure to boot up. Beeps during boot up or unusual BIOS messages during boot up.

    HDD is the most sensitive part, other components are pretty sturdy.
    Test the HDD and if it comes as healthy, consider yourself lucky.

    Is this RAID 0 or RAID 1? Data recovery from RAID 1 is relatively simple, IF the drive is readable. But that is a big if. Data recovery from RAID 0 can be a challenge even for a data recovery professional.

    In such cases there may be hidden damage not detectable even with close physical examination.

    Backups should be made when everything is working well. After problems develop may be too late.
