You could try loading your OS cd and attempting to repair the system... just hope its a few files that have gone missing.
Boot from the cd.. follow the prompts until you can select a repair option..
If you dont have the OS cd tell me your Version of windows and ill find you the .iso download link.
I have the OS CD, I went in and long story short had to use Live boot Repair and Utilities CD 2012 to fix the MBR. Since there was only one disc it did the repair and now Vista is running on the solid state drive.
For the record I have to state that the Windows Vista repair utility wiped out the boot record, I had to use Acronis to put the image back on the solid state drive and then use the repair utility to fix the MBR on the disc.
I hope that wasn't too confusing....but thanks for pointing me towards repairing instead of replacing an expensive solid state drive.
