    continuous reboots

    I have a couple of machines, one 95 and one 98 that have got themselves into a state of continuous reboots. They both go through the early stages of the boot sequence then the Windows logo disappears and the machine reboots.

    The bootlog.txt file is showing that the only things failing to load are the *.ttf fonts. The *.fon fonts load successfully.

    A rebuild of these machines needs to be avoided if at all possible. Can anyone suggest a solution, or has it been seen before?

    Thanks muchly.

    Re: continuous reboots

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q127/9/70.asp>Q127970</A> Load Failures Listed in the Bootlog.txt File includes:

    Font Failures
    After you first start Windows, the Bootlog.txt file may list many font load failures. This behavior is typical. When Font Manager searches the hard disk for fonts, it may find fonts in several folders. After Font Manager finds fonts, it records the information so that future attempts to locate a font proceed more quickly.

    At a guess, you may have a corrupt font file. I'd boot to DOS and run Chkdsk (full disc scan) and then move all the .ttf's to another directory. If this works, load the fonts back in one at a time.
