I would also suggest you look into your ram settings - voltage and timings - make sure they are set to mfg specs.

2 sticks of ram or 4? Have you added ram recently?

Any overclocking?

winload.exe is part of the boot process. It has nothing to do with RAM.

Did you rebuild the boot loader, as suggested in the second part of my post?
