I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you recently added any new hardware?
Try holding the Delete key while re-booting.
That should get you to BIOS setup where you can select default settings for the system.
If reboot is then successfull, change settings incrementally for performance increase until trouble re-appears to learn the cause.

No, I did not add any new hardware.
I have set the BIOS to the default settings but it was unsuccessful.
I tried changing the set up, but still I couldn't get to c: prompt or Win95.

Anyway thank you for the advice.

Forgive me if this sounds too simple...
Did you "Save & exit" the BIOS setup?
If the computer will not pass POST, forget about the operating system.
Now, if there is a hard drive problem, and the system passes POST, then you won't get a Dos prompt or start Windows.
Is it still hanging up, or is it just failing to boot the operating system?
Have you tried a bootable floppy?
