win95 can't see ANY FONTS!
Posted on 1998-12-29
this is a wierd thing which has happened to me... it happened moments after i changed video driver from virge to S3.
I was having problems with black dots & patterns on my screen and a friend suggested i try a new display driver. I chose the 'harmless' S3 to see what if it helps. Instead, on reboot, my screen has gone fuuny - the desktop icon description are in LARGE fonts. It seems the only font it can use is 'system'. Worst still - Ms-Word is not loading up complaining of not having certain fonts. Many applications are not working because of this.
I used tweakUI to repair the font folder - i thought the windows/font folder was corrupted. Even that didn't help. The fonts are all there & i can see them all in ControlPanel/Fonts.
B4 i reinstall EVERYTHING (which is a nitemare) is there somethingelse i can perhaps try...???
Happy new year.
