SCSI problem

I have a 486 dx/100- 20 megs ram 1.6 gig. HD.
When I upgraded to Win95 my computer locked up and would not go to the desk top.  The only way to get in was to reboot and go to safe mode.  I tracked the problem to my scsi drive or driver.  To make a long story short, if I run win3.1 the cd rom works fine. If I disconnect the scsi and reboot (in win95) it all works fine.  Otherwise it freezes.
Any ideas?

possible cabling problem, or termination problem

Remove ANY device drivers from your config.sys and try again, you possibly load realmode drivers here.
If this doesn't work let us know what type of SCSI card you have and what ID's they are on...

Good luck.
