tape backup problem

Using Colorado Backup software and a Colorado T1000 tape drive I attempted a full system backup. After 30 minutes I received the message that the memory manager had experienced a serious error. Reinstalling hardware and software did not solve the problem. The system also became unstable (again!); blue screens, etc. I 'recovered' by copying system.1st to system.dat. Windows95 runs ok now, but I have trouble every time I boot windows95. Eventually I get a message about loading the register from backup and that results is a successful boot. I am willing to give up on the tape backup, but I would like to  solve the bootup problems.

Thanks for your assistance

1.  boot the win95 in safemode
2.  try to remove the tape drive in the system device(you may have installed the drive in the system device and there may have some conflict between the IRQ).
3.  try to see if there has anything in win95 registry make from that tape drive.
