Page Fault Errors and Really Weird Fonts

  1. I have been having serious problems with Win2K. First I started getting a lot of Page Fault in Non Paged Areas. I checked out a few forums and faulty hardware OR device drivers are generally suspected. I can't find any problems with the hardware (switching out memory etc)

    Now things have gotten really odd. In windows dialog boxes, any time there is a "W" in the text, it looks like this (hope you can see this)


    Half of the first downward arm is missing !

    Anyone seen this one before.

    Welcome to TechSpot

    Looks like you should reinstall your system-fonts.
    These are on your install-cd in the I386 subdir, disguised as .fo_ files.

    In your Control Panel, double-click on the Fonts icon, Then click on File/Install new font.
    Browse over to the CD fonts (or wherever you store your backup) and select them all from there, letting them replace the current ones.
    Any other fonts, such us Office-fonts will not be tampered with.
