Performance loss after computer fell down the stairs

My baby had an accident. After a night-long LAN Party, I've dropped my computer down the stairs! When I popped the case open I saw that my huge video card GTX 260 has got out of her slot and is now loose in the case. I've put it back but then the computer didn't boot up.

"As well as checking that the HDD isn't damaged you should check that all the memory modules are OK (properly seated and working) as well as the CPU itself, any other expansion cards (network etc.) and the HDD cables (both data and power) as well.

A drop like that will, at the very least, have shaken everything.

The fact that your video card works OK in another machine is encouraging - it implies that the damage isn't total or to everything."
