An Actual Computer Problem, and a kicker!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay well my dad has a PC that is in his business and is under the cash register (if it matters) hooked up to a VGA monitor at almost all times. The cashier (a long long time has worked here) uses the PC to play solitare and stuff when the store is empty.. Or so I think. The PC is not connected to the net but was before when I had it (this was my PC way back when with win 98)...

Anyways this is the specs:

Pentium 3 @ 800Mhz (133 x 6)
About 512MB of DDR1 (I think..)
XP Pro Build 2600...
Some sound card
Some Ethernet card
Some mobo..

Anyway I attempted to start it in XP Pro and it failed, as it did with my dad and he brought it home to me to fix.

After failing and rebooting I attempted at loading in safe mode.

Upon arrival it was all black but the WinXP info, Safe mode in 4 corners and a mouse. After a while:

lsass.exe failed to start -> OK -> Reboots, starts regular windows -> windows cannot start because WINDOWS/System/vgaoem.fon (\\ not / sorry)

Rebooting just hangs after post after that but signal is not lost..

Did you try a windows repair? It's the only thing short of reformating I can think of, because it sounds like a file got corrupt.

Edit\\\\ I didn't really read through this, but it could help. Link

If your account was password protected your going to be in trouble, its going to give you an access denied when you try to copy the uncorrupted file from any source. A windows reinstall is going to be your best bet.

Yah try the repair install and if that does not work you can use the repair console to go in and delete the corrupted file and then replace it with an uncorrupted version from the windows disk.

Okay will try that now but for some reason I believe lsass.exe which can be a trojan is involved. This PC has very delicate info about banking and records so I didn't want to risk anything like that. Re-install is not an option..

I'll put this HDD in another PC, copy the files over and then attempt this hopefully the PC will work
