In my experience, the red X is a symptom of several possible conditions and bugs.
I had a panic the other day when several different documents suddenly got the red X at the same time.
What happened was that an unrelated program had barfed temporary files all over my C drive, leaving almost no free space. This took my a while to notice, because I keep all my documents on my D drive, which had a bit over a gig free. Anyway, Word was apparently trying to use the C drive to store some of its own temporary files in order to show graphics, and, since it failed to store the temporary files, it showed the red X instead. An error message explaining that drive C is full would have been nice, but we are talking about Microsoft here, so I'm just glad there wasn't any permanent damage. Cleaning up drive C fixed them all.
