Are you sure that the Tyan Titan III motherboard can run with a Pentium 75 processor?

More info:  BIOS type and version?  Chipset type and version?  Is the BIOS configured correctly based upon the hardware present in the system?

Titan III can be used for P75, if I'm not mistaken. Is everything new ? sounds like a RAM or BIOS problem. Also could be due to extreme heat or static. Which BIOS are u using ? Have you used the hard disk auto-config option (if available)in your BIOS ? Do remember that you have to set your HD to LBA mode, and not "large " or "normal."  Most likely this is the case. Either that or your HD is faulty (but this is not likely.)

Is this a brand new HD?  If not (even if it is, supposedly, it may have been a return or something), have you checked to make sure the HD doesn't have a virus?  I've seen every symptom you describe due to the presence of a MBR virus.

If other software runs, you may have a board failure. If you can get access to duplicate parts, try replacing the board. Do you always load Win95 from the same disks ?

I would run a utility like Norton Disk Doctor on the hard drive to make sure the drive is good and then do a low level format before installing the software. The Norton Utilities will have what you need to do this. The drive may be bad.
