Try the reset hole above the HDMI port on the side of the tablet. Hold power and use a paper clip or something for the tiny hole.
But if the inability to boot the tablet also results from the fall, I don't have much hope for your tablet - sorry.

If you have a USB connection, you can also try to access it over ADB (would only work if you had "enable USB debugging" checked in Developer options) or - if you can get into the bootloader - in fastboot.
But what's your situation: Stock? Custom rom/recovery? Root?
Also try to connect the tablet via HDMI cable to your TV. Maybe the digitizer is broken.

no the fall has nothing to do with the tablet not booting. what happened was I gave it an adb command to reboot bootloader and it has gone into apx mode i believe. i tried the reset button but nothing. any specific way i should press reset?
