G570 splash screen then black screen with cursor...help!

No evidence of HD activity, <ctrl> <alt> <del> repeats the process.

This is a kid's computer and likely was knocked while on yesterday...where do I start.

 

Any help much appreciated.

hi marked.

it usually points that you'll need to re-install the operation system.
you can try to re-install the operation system by pressing one key recover button.

hope this helps.

I have another identical laptop...I could swap out the HDs...

 

but bios doesn't seem to be active either.

 

phone call to family comp. tech suggested loose component...is this possibility?

 

Pressing any function key causes repeating error tone...
