how to make win95 use its himem.sys and emm386.exe? Currently it is using ones of win3.1.

Recently I have set up win95 over win3.1. Problems arose during hardware detection when win95 tried to read the hardware, it prompted for errors such as 0E at ...0D at...ect. So win95 setup was not complete. I had to cold boot the computer a few times, however, still the computer prompted for errors in hardware detection.
I think it's win95 himem.sys and emm386.exe are causing the problem. CAn't I use himem.sys and emm386 of win95 over my computer.
I have a 486dx-2 Compaq Pres. 50Mhz, with 24mb Ram, 340mb disk space.
Is it possible that the files are conflicting with win3.1 himem and emm386. What I mean is that is it possible that himem and emm386 is programmed onto the computer and cannot be replaced by win95 himem and emm386? Help?
