When Windows Vista starts on my laptop I get this screen:

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

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

Status: 0xc0000001

Thats really confusing me!

Should I just do as it says or do something else.
