    my laptop fell yesterday but it worked normally after that. i tried to turn it on after a couple of hours and got a flashing question mark.

    an installation disk didn't come with it when i bought it so i can't do the disk recovery.

    holding the option key at restart (for startup manager) starts internet recovery ''starting internet recovery this may take awhile" and then an error shows up ( -2105F).

    i tried resetting PRAM but the flashing question mark is still there.

    is there a way to fix this or recover the files on the laptop?

    Boot up with Cmd R it will get you into recovery and diagnostics run disk utility and see what it finds and what can be fixed
