windows detected a hard disk problem
back up your files immediatly to prevent informaation loss, and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk

Immediate steps
Because a disk failure will cause you to lose all programs, files and documents on the disk, you should back up your important information immediately.Try not to use your computer until you have repaired or replaced the hard disk.

Which disk is failing?
The following hard disks are reporting failure:

Did you run checkdisk?
Sorry, I am no Vista user, so I cannot tell you how to run it, but should not be too hard to find (in XP right click on the disk, click properties and in properties it has an option to check the disk for errors).
