It spent the whole summer out there and we never had a problem with it before then and it was run every day. Then in oct/nov of 2008 we brought it back in the house and I tried to use it but I keep getting this error \windows\system\vgaoem.fon corrupt error 14 Can someone help me fix it, tell me what Ineed to buy or if I have to take it somewhere. I dont care so much about the computer as I do the pictures that I have on it. I know very little about computers but I'm not dumb, Please help, cries from a helpless woman, lol

Sorry to hear about the fire in your home. I hope the loss was not that great.

From your post, I have ruled out the common cause of this issue that arises when someone perform an upgrade to Windows XP. The only thing I can think of as the likely cause is the corruption of Windows XP registry. A corrupted registry will prevent Windows from loading and the fix for it is HERE. If you feel uncomfortable working with it, I hope you know someone - perhaps a friend - who would help you out with the Guided Help provided.

What is the brand name & exact model of this PC? More specifically is this an OEM?

Has good info on how to repair the problem, especially the last posting on that page. Like Xp/VistaUser said, you may have to get someone with some PC knowledge to give you a hand on this.

Also, if you have to buy a different PC, you can always slave the old drive to it and have access to all your files and pictures.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Thank you for all the replys, I had my husband take it in to get fixed today, I'm just so frusterated. I think the windows running system is the problem and it might need a new running prgram. As for it being OEM, I don't know what that means, Its a HP desktop, I bought it brand new from Walmart years ago, like 6 years, I think. Thank you everyone.
I still have some hair left, LOL

I hope this is not too late. Wherever you take it for repair, they usually either just replace the hard drives or pop in the CD to reinstall or restore Windows. Make sure your husband tell the service outlet to first retrieve the files that are dear to you before they try anything. Otherwise .....
