Grab a universal IDE/SATA to USB adapter for like 20 bucks, take a 
laptop over, take her hard drive, hook it up to the adapter and plug 
into your laptop.  Backup data to a DVD on that laptop, replace drive, 
reinstall.

You sound correct, that this will likely be some bad hardware, and this 
PC is probably on its way out, but there you go.
