Sys. Specs:
HP dv5000 Custom Laptop
AMD Turion x64 2.2Ghz
ATI Radeon Xpress 200m
1GB Ram (Forgot what kind)

When I start my computer, before the Windows splash screen even loads, I recieve an error that says:

Windows could not start. The following file is missing or corrupted \windows\system\vgaoem.fon.

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows setup using the original setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.


I have the the Windows Pro OS disk that came with my laptop, and I have tried to use it to access the recovery console so that I can repair or replace the missing file. The thing is, when I try to do it, it starts like this:

then boots into this:

Then, before it can even reach the repair screen, it tells me this:

\i386\ntkrnlmp.exe can not be loaded
The error code is 4
Press any key to restart


Then the process starts all over, going to the first HP screen and then trying to boot from the disk.

Can someone help me?

Di you press F2 like the blue screen says, look at the bottom, to start the recovery process? That will start restoring the missing files. The file in question is a font and since it's missing your screen is blank.
