If you have access to another Vista machine, use a USB stick and copy the
nls files from that install to the one you cannot boot. You can do that
using a Knoppix or similar linux live cd that can write to NTFS.

I do not have a copy of the disc, as it came downloaded on my laptop.

I get error message 0Xc000000f and that the NLS data is missing.

It does NOT start command prompt or start in safe mode of any kind, and I tried running the memory diagnostics tool but when it restarts to give me the test results I get thrown back to the same screen.

All I have is an update disc.

Are there any way around this problem? The vista laptop is my partners and he works from it, he needs the information from it continue working. Going to a repair person or buying a new OS disk is completely out of the question as we do not have the money for it.
