My Laptop, which has XP, will only load with WingDings. Unable to read anything! I don't have a restore point! (That's another story!) How do I restore my system? 'Windows XP Home Recovery CD-ROM' unable to reinstall. What do I do now? Log
I HAD almost the same prob about 2 weeks ago, try the tweak ui fix to repair your fonts folder or yyou may have to reinstal windows, this what i had to do, just go to upgrade, all you lose is your settings, the desktop pic youve set, etc but you can put them back the way you want it after.
That should read RUN BOX. Don't forget to have the XP disk in your drivr. Or you could re-install your fonts, choose control panel and d\click on fonts. Open the file menu and choose install new font. Find the fonts folder C:\windows\fonts and choose select all and then click OK. Your fonts will be re-installed and Windows will have them back....TT
Thank you all for helpful advice BUT I cannot read WingDings and therefore have no idea where to find TweakUI! I installed new memory some weeks ago (256x2) I would re install Windows but the CD-ROM which came with my laptop only had the XP Recovery disk. Which has failed to install or recover! Do I have the right disk? (With ME on my PC I simply re install from the ME disk and usually that will solve a problem.) I tried Safe Mode but that also has W/D font. Why does XP go to WingDings? After all it could use a different font. Mystified! Log
