    Hi there. It looks like you have a helpful community here. If I may bother you for some expertise, I have a problem. When I start my computer, Windows Boot Manager appears and reads --

    Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
    To fix the problem:

    1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
    2. Choose your language settings and then click "next."
    3. Click "Repair Your Computer."

    If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

    File: \windows\system32\winload.exe

    Status: 0xc0000221

    Info: The file is possibly corrupt. Its header checksum does not match the computed checksum.

    Now the problem is, Vista came installed on my computer when I purchased it. In addition, I have sent the machine in twice before (about a year ago) and they (radioshack...who took over my coverage plan from Circuit City) replaced the hard drive once so I'm ASSUMING they reloaded the backup. What can I do? Am I screwed? Can I save my data?
