This is what it shows on the screen:

Loading Linux 4.3.0-kali1-amd64 ...
error: attempt to read or write outside disk ‘hd0’.
Loading initial ramdisk ...
error: you need to load the kernel first.

Press any key to continue ..._

And then it returns to GNU GRUB version2.02~beta3-5

    Consider a cup. Now drop it. Ooops, the handle's snapped off. It's still a cup and can hold liquid. But it's broken and if you try to use the handle you can't. Furthermore, the cup might be microscopically cracked and sooner or later it will snap into pieces. That's your disk drive.

    It's not Linux. It's your disk drive.

You've broken the laptop. If you're lucky it's just the disk drive, and they're relatively easy to replace.

You can check the disk drive with a Rescue CD, and run smartctl -a /dev/sda. Post the results (as text) in your question and someone can interpret for you.
