This happened on occasion with Windows XP, where the OS was loaded by
A first response would be to check the hard disk for problems, but in
most cases I've encounterd this, the hard disk was fine.
NTLDR loading errors, or in the case of Vista, WINLOAD errors, can also
be the result of faulty memory. You'll need to remove and reseat your
RAM modules, or use a process of elimination to determine which memory
module is giving the fault. You can do this my removing all the memory,
and inserting them one at time until the problem come back.
If you have overclocked you rig (or it was sold to you in an
overclocked state), then resetting the BIOS memory timings and voltages
may also help.
