if my laptop is hacked what can happen to it?

darn near anything ... it might be locked and ransom demanded, or used to store kiddie porn ... for example

A hacker can get into your computer and see your files.
He can watch what you do online and get your passwords for online accounts or even bank accounts.
If they find a computer that's on all day, they can load a program onto it to mine bitcoin or do some other processing-heavy job.
But you're not likely to get hacked. You're more likely to get a virus or trojan horse.
