Win95 refuses to load!
Posted on 1997-03-12
While logging on to AOL, I started their version of Netscape. It crashed my computer. Who knows what happened. I have run Win95 for nearly a year now on this system w/o any problems.
I have fdisked my drive at least 3 times. Reinstalled win95 with the help of a MS tech who told me I have a boot virus. I downloaded McAfee's scan program-they say if you Fdisk a drive, no virus can surrive.
I loaded the machine, an AMD 486/133 jumped to 160, with 32 meg RAM, with MS DOS 5.0 reloaded win3.1 and can get it working. I have Norton's utilities for win95. Took the programs that checks the system off my notebook and ran it on the 486. No problems.
Win 95 loads find-I install the very basic systems. When the computer reboots, a Win 95 function after installation, it checks the memory fine, shows the CMOS "system" screen, that is, A drive B drive connected so much memory etc, in a rectangular box. Under this it shows the onboard cache just below the box on the right, 256 K, then it shows my cpu speed-160 mH. He it just hangs.
Like I said, I have run this system for nearly a year w/o a single problem! It all started with AOL's netscape.
Can you help
