This is a guess, but it sounds like the power supply died on your laptop.
You are extremely lucky in that your sister has the same kind of laptop that you have. Here's what you can do: 1) Plead, beg and grovel to your sister so that she will let you temporarily put your hard drive in her machine. 2) Copy all your data files to CD or network them to the computer you are using now. At least you will have access to your files until you can get your laptop fixed. Now you why so many people recommend backing up your data on a regular basis.
