Upon trying to download DirectX from the manufacturer's site, my computer froze and I was unable to do anything but restart. However, my computer couldn't boot up because my "winnt\system\vgaoem.fon" file was missing or corrupt. I've already tried booting up the computer with its last known good configuration and in safe mode to repair the problem, but neither work, not to say I'd know how to repair it if I even got back in. Any ideas? Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
The Spaj Pirate

if u have access 2 another computer, download 'testdisk' it will fix partions to original, then copy vgaoem.fon file from xp disc or from net, paste file into windows system folder, done - did it myself on hp, and 100% restored - 15-20 min max
