Welcome to the Discussions.
Dropping the computer while running could corrupt the data on the drive.
Put the install disc in the drive and start while holding down the "c" key. Select Disk Utility form the Installer menu (Panther) or the Utility menu (Tiger) after clicking through the install process through the language screen. Repair the drive and if any errors are reported repeat the process until no errors are reported. If errors can't be corrected post the error message here.

Thanks John, I have managed to get 'Disk Utility' up and have seemingly repaired the disk however I cannot locate the original OSX installation discs and have had to use a friends copies which are a later variation than mine. Is there anyway I can install and operate this later version because at the moment its not recognising the later version of OSX. I have in short taken a few steps forward but now have another hurdle to clamber over. I'm hoping not being able to locate the original OSX discs will not be fatal.
Thanks for you helpiBook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
