problems with installing win95 and turning back
Posted on 1997-12-18
I recently bought windows 95 for my 486DX computer with 24 MB.
After installing the OS, he crashed on checking the hardware (Checking Plug and play...). I checked with a diagnostic program and indeed there was a problem with the Interupt ID of COM1 and COM2.
I then thought, oh well, I'll live without win95 an reformatted my harddisk, installed DOS again and reinstalled win 3.1.
And guess what : win 3.1 won't boot neither.
I then changed the I/O controller card, rediagnosed the hardware and it seemed fine. But win3.1 won't boot neither.
I am working on this one for about a week now and I am pretty desperate. Can someone help me out ? Has anyone ideas of what I can do (besides buying a new one) ?
Thank you VERY much
