    Recently dropped my MBP and now it won't boot. It sounded like the disk was failing to mount and the initial screen was blank. Now the screen blinks a file folder w a question mark inside. Please advise

    When you dropped it the hard drive crashed. Most likely due to the needle coming into contact with the platters.

    you'll probably need a new HDD, and a usb stick to install mavericks.
