Windows 95 problem

By Mick@work ·
I have an old fujitsu machine, 200 processor & 2G Hard disk, which is giving me problems. It was networked but i have changed it to a standalone for home use.

I was getting various .dll errors & hard disk problems so i used fdisk to reformat the disk, however, it still gave problems after i re-installed win 95.

I put in a different hard disk which had been working ok but now when i boot the machine it constantly reboots itself. It never gets past the initial boot.

Any ideas what the problem might be?

Thanks (in anticipation)

One you could have a boot virus.which isn being read in the bios.using fdisk type in FDISK /MBR,then kdo a partition and reformat to see if this works.
The other problem besides it being a boot virus could be a CPU problem.Run scandisk to check fordisk errors

I agree with SoulRider... but in addition to that, the computer rebooting itself indicates perhaps that the processor is potentially overheating (possibly fried), or perhaps something on the M-Board is out of commision. Check that the fan on the processor is moving freely and up to speed. Try a new fan, or if you can replace the processor, this sounds like alot of systems I have worked on.
Good luck!

could be hard ware. this sometimes happens when a power supply is going bad. or could be some faulty drivers,try starting in safe mode by pressing f5 or f8 during boot up.
and see if you can get into windows that way best of luck, mark

In my expereince its because the CPU is overheating.
Since you say you moved the computer from place to place it might be that a cable inside the box got in the way of the CPU fan and the fan stoped working, so computer freezes because you CPU overheated.
