There are no internal power supplies in laptops. What has most likely happened is as your laptop fell it either landed on the part of the power cord that was sticking out the back/side of the computer or the tension was so great on the plug from it falling that the power supply connector on the motherboard has broken loose from the motherboard. I have seen this happen a lot. This is not a job for an amatuer. It takes someone with knowledge of laptop repair and motherboard repair. In your best case scenarios either the little strip that contains the power button has popped loose and is not making contact (seen this happen in one case) or the power supply adapter (not part of the laptop) has been damaged and torn some wires. In the first case just try to push that power button strip down on the laptop first to see if it will snap back in place. If you can find someone else that has the same adapter you can ask to borrow theirs for a few minutes. Medium case scenario is that it has broken the solder loose and just needs to be resoldered or a new power plug soldered in. Worst case scenario is that it has cracked the motherboard, which will be expensive to fix (it would have to be replaced). Continuing to try and use it in this state (unless it is the best case scenario) will further damage the motherboard as the electricity will start jumping to places it should not go and eventually destroy the motherboard.
