    have you tried going into safe mode?, press f8 on start up
    If you can get into safe mode with command prompt type chkdsk /r and see what happens may sort it.
    if not u may need the start up disk to do same action (repair from command console)

    done that and it says "system is not fully installed please run setup again"

    So when you switch it on it is asking you for the machine name?

    This means you have begun re-installing Windows and need to finish it off.

    Give it a name and then follow the onscreen prompts.

    is this an iqon PC?, if so there are a few possibilities, has the system had a repair at any stage?, ie a new mainboard?
    It could be a corrupted sector in which case you will need a windows disk to start off, no neighbors with one?

    and yes the disk from your sister or a copy of it should be ok for a repair

    I really think from you have said, is that your have initiated a re-install using ALT+F10 as the laptop boots up.

    So I am afraid you just need to follow it through now

    if you mean it has an entry box, then just put your name in and press NEXT
