My sister said i should by new memory and flash bios start over.
If you have another pc handy (with installed virus protection), I would remove the hard drive and install it in that machine as a secondary hard drive (probably need to change jumper on hard drive to slave if on same ribbon cable as primary drive), boot up into windows, run a virus scan on the newly installed drive to remove any viruses or malware. Then, remove the drive and install back in original pc. Boot up and push F8 to bring up boot menu. Choose "Last known Configuration that worked" or "Last known Good Configuration" (can't remember exact wording) and see if that allows you back into Windows. If so, install good anti-virus, do full scan and back up anything you want saved just in case.

Your sister has a vivid imagination. Changing the memory and flashing the BIOS will chane nothing.
If you want to start from scrath then reformat the hard drive and reinstall the system but as you probably don't have a system backup disc this will prove impossible for you.
Your best bet is take it to your local PC shop (I don't mean the mainstream ones) and they will be able to restore your system.
You've learned a valuble lesson the hard way here. Always have a good antivirus programme installed, make sure it is up to date and do a full scan on a regular basis.
