Vista hangs on booting at crcdisk.sys

My Dell laptop running Vista suddenly refuses to boot and hangs after the loading of the driver crcdisk.sys. I've attempted booting from the recovery dvd without success giving the same result. My laptop just hangs with a blank screen. Can someone please assist? I have 4 Gig of RAM and 250Gig of hard disk.
