Default My Canon PowerShot SD870 IS won't focus.

I have a Canon PowerShot SD870 IS that I have had for about two years. It's been through some rough times (dropped a few times), but it has always functioned properly. One night a friend had my camera and when I got it back in the morning, every picture (distance makes no difference), even the preview for the picture was completely blurry. Is my camera beyond repair, or is there at least something I can try? I have a picture of my camera's display screen pointed at my computer. As you can tell, the computer can barely be made out. The grey dots on the screen were there before the focus issue and didn't affect the actual file.

Um . . . No - can't see the picture. I suspect he gave the lens that one-too-many bump though.
