Unplanned shutdown shouldn't have killed anything unless she managed to spike the power somehow.

In the short term, shove the HD in a caddy and access it from another machine. You might be some time fixing or replacing the laptop.

If it's got a socketed CPU you've the option of re-seating it and/or swapping it out for another of the same type. You might be able to sneak an upgrade in, too...
