Bootmgr is the file that starts the loading of the Vista operating system. Getting that error means the file is missing or now corrupted and cannot be started. To repair this you would need to run the Vista startup recovery.

How to run the recovery varies between computers. Did you buy and install vista on it or did it come with the computer and if so what brand and model is the computer?

Ok, power on the computer, at the HP logo screen press F11, that should start the recovery manager. Press Advanced options, first thing should be Startup repair, click on that and let it run and see if that fixes the problem for you.

That may or may not work, if it doesn't, then the next thing I would do is test the hard drive. You can click the HDD diag link in my signature, select the brand of hard drive you have and download and burn to a cd thier diagnostic software.
