Sorry to hear that happened to you! I think I read somewhere in the user's manual that MacBook Pros aren't designed for bouncing! It certainly sounds like something's not right. I'd take it to the Genius Bar and let them check it out.

If there is substantial (read:noticable) damage anywhere on the chassis I would call up instead of bring it into the store.

The guys fixing it in texas might not care as much as the local geniuses.

Well, i cant fold it anymore that is the damage on the chassis (small lump just above the where DVD gets in but i got no problem with it at all) but repairable as far as DIY video shows on Youtube , ı will get speare one but funs are my concern! these buggers should be working smoothly i cant figure it out why both stop working! ı only think that not hardware problem maybe software problem is taking place! i live in Turkey, there is no way i can take it to Apple store i need to fix it myself otherwise i will have to send it to London to get it fixed!

you have a apple service in Turkey ,if you do not know where is it i can tell you how to find it
for your funs, when you drop most probably they pluged off or damaged that is why when it gets hot it is shutting down itself(you should not use your laptop until you fix the problem)
if you want to fix by yourself you can find the guide in ifixit.com
good luck
