I had the same problem and came across the following solution that worked for me as well:
\015\012Re: windows Vista will not start \015\01218 Aug 2009 07:28PM\015\012\015\012I was getting a the same error codes and couldn't get Windows to boot up at all. I went to BIOS set up (restart your computer and hit F12 when the BIOS screen comes up), went to onboard devices and changed the SATA Operations from ACHSI (don't know how it got there) to the factory default setting ATA. Then I started up in "repair mode" (which was an option that was coming up when I tried to boot up before but never worked) - it went through a repair check and went to login screen.
\015\012Prior to finding this - I tried several things including start up from the Reinstallation disc, but nothing worked. I was ready to buy a new hard drive, but don't have to. Works fine!
\015\012Not sure what caused the problem to start with. It is an "Inspiron 1520"
You have a failed hard drive. if you need to save data, pick up a usb to sata on ebay for about 10 bucks and you hook it up to another computer with your dell hard drive and you can save files. from there you can try to reload the machine with the backup disks but i recommend replacing the hard drive and starting from scratch to avoid future issues

good luck!
