Hi n thanks for checking this post,

It had been months since id been on the internet so yesterday I updated and i ran S&D, AVG, AdAware, and updated Zone alarm from 5.5 to 6 and all was well.

I left my machine running over night, it was still running in the morning but soon after turned itself off.

Now when i turn it on it give me the same error message box, twice. ( after booting into windows )

" Validation failed for C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\VSINIT.dll. Your probably missing nessassary root certificate. "

I didnt go any further and fist tryed rebooting it a couple of times

sometimes the menue apears transparent and sometimes it seems ok and lauches programms no prob.

but each time the same message comes up twice.

i also tryed system restore to an earler time, same message.

also tryed doing a repair from the Windows XP Pro cd, then i get this message

" file \i386\vgaoem.fon could not be loaded. The error code is 32768 set up cant continue. "

Now this gets me worried and after a search i get different solusions, some alien to me and some conflicting; the only one i tried is

at RUN typing sfc/scannow but windows cant find it.

Now im lost and concerned, any help much apreachated. thanks in advance

Ha , chears for that , ill give it another go

if i can get the thing to boot, ive tryed 5-6 times and it just hangs on a black screen, no post. I ve changed the power supply; the same thing. the hard drive tryes to start and sounds like it stops. How can i tell if the hardrive has gone, if i cant boot and i have no other hardrive?

3 have failed on me in the past year and a bit so i wouldnt be suprised if its happend again. but this time i have no spare.

ps ill give it another go tommorow after it ( and me ) have cooled down

thanks again

Still no joy.

Have found and replaced the hardrive but still it doesnt post or beep or even give the monitor the green light. Just a black screen

The the harddrive bigins to whirl then stops.

i reset the cmos batery. still nothing. I did this as i remember it saying at boot something about the cmos being reset then something being updated then i noticed when it did boot the clock was 2002.

But as ive now tried two harddrives im lost.

Has this now become a hardware problem and should i post it to the hard ware section?

Any ideas
