    If it was me I'd probably drop it again, to see if that fixed it, if not, I'd ring the insurance company lol

    manufacturers warranty does not cover accidental damage.. When they test the drive it will throw up an error code saying 'impact damage'..

    not necessarly, the hard drive does not stocks any codes like drop or smth like that. all u can say is that u tried to put it on in the morning and it did not work. thay are loads of viruses in the world which can do what happened to you. maybe the discs inside the hdd are gone or the reading head went of my half of micron.... just call them and 100 % sure that they cannot tell ya that you dropt it (unless there is a visible sign of the damage) .
    But, lately, as i found out, they are installing a software that can "listen" to the inflections in your voice and they can tell ya if you are lying or not (it happened to me) (they were repeating a message that they are runing tests about the level of the stress in ur voice)....anyway...let us know how it went !!!
