win95 keeps rebooting

by Tathtar In reply to win95 keeps rebooting

Umm gee not much help here, but as a guess its a virus, I once saw a bootsector virus that would reboot windows right after the splash screen came up, my thoughts are it is porbably the same virus.

I had the same problem, try removing something from startup, so your computer has less to load.

1. Startup computer with anti-virus emergency disk and perform scan
2. Startup computer with startup floppy with scandisk utility
3. Startup computer and press F5 upon entering WIN95 startup screen, boot in safe mode and make note of any error MSGS you may get.
4. Once in safe mode try to perform scandisk once again.

Good Luck!

I would suggest booting into safe mode for Win 95 or booting to DOS and running scandisk or Norton Disk Doctor. If neither of those helps, it may be some of the Win 95 files that are corrupt. You can reload Win 95 without losing your data, but youwill lose all of your individual program settings. Good luck!

Have seen this problem a couple of times. Many causes possible. Viruses aside you could have a bad memory module, or even a confilict in Windows.
Hope this helps a little.
