Some Library Drivers of windows 95 are damage, if you just made a new installation of w95, try to make a new one again, but first run scandisk to asure your hd is in good shape.

Good Luck

Try booting to safe mode.  (At power on, press F8 key when you see "Starting Windows95" message for menu.)
Will Windows start then?

Are there any programs listed in your start menu?
If so, temporarily disable them to see if they cause the problem.
I would also check display properties in Device Manager for possible conflict.
If there is a conflict listed there, re-install the video driver.

You are having problems with your network settings or network adapter. Take out any networking cards and the such. If your problem goes away when the card is out then I would get some updated drivers for that card.
