Whoa, cool pictures!

It sounds to me like something isn't making proper contact between the two boards. Carefully inspect the interconnect on both boards for any damaged pins and contacts. Also visually inspect both boards for any possible broken solder points on each component.

So, have you been carrying it around using it without a case, like in the pictures or is it like that due to the case being broke and the fall?

The computer won't be able to recognize it until it can power on.

Yes. The Zen needs power before it can do anything. Without it, you don't know if there is any additional damage. So, it doesn't work on battery or AC power? Check the solder points; the points for the battery and the power connector.
