Missing or corrupted: Windows\System\Vgaoem.f [Closed]

Hello

Lately when I booted up my computer I got the message "The following file is missing or corrupt: Windows\System\Vgaoem.fon". I found the way to fix the problem on the microsoft support website http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=315338 . The problem is my administrator password doesn't work in the command console so I just pressed enter and typed in the command from the website. When I press enter it says "The system cannot find the file or directory specified" ( I put the right drives into the command H: and C:). I read somewhere that not putting in the administrator password won't make this work. How do I fix my computer?

Hi,

You have to enter the main "Administrator" password, since most of users don't

put password for the main administrator you can simply press enter.

You should get the command prompt as C:\WINDOWS>

try this 1

after getting the command prompt C:\WINDOWS>

type these commands

cd \ and press enter

now your prompt changes to C:\>

Here I assume your CD/DVD drive letter is H which contains the windows xp cd.

type this command

h: and press enter

Now your command prompt changes to H:\>

now type this command.

cd i386 and press enter ( note there is a space between cd and i386)

Now you command prompt changes to H:\I386>

now type this command

expand vgaoem.fo_ C:\windows\system and press enter

(Note the underscore character after the "o" in "Vgaoem.fo_" and there is a

between Vgaoem.fo_ and c:\windows\system)

ok now try to fix the mbr and the boot.ini file.

go to windows recovery console and enter these commands.
fixmbr and press enter.

bootcfg /rebuid and press enter.

Windows installation scan will be performed.
When you get a message like "Add installation to boot list" press y

Then enter the following.
For "Enter Load Identifier"prompt ---> type Windows XP Professional
For"Enter OS Load Options" prompt -------> type /fastdetect
Note : Don't forget "/" before fastdetect.
Then type exist to reboot your computer.
Now check whether you are able to login into the windows. If the problem exists now try to
repair your OS by follow above steps. Lets hope that this time it detects your OS to repair it.
It still doesn't work.
check your ram,pull them all out and reinstall one at a time and do a restart after every stick

help me please.


thanks,
Thank you so much. That fixed the vgaoem problem but now when I turn on my computer it says "We apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this." Then It has some options to choose from "Safe mode, Safe mode, Safe mode with command prompt, Last know good configoration (your most recent settings that worked), Start windows normally". I have tried all of them but they all just restart the computer and go back to the same place. Is there any way to fix this?
