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.)

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?

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.
