Windows 95 won't load

By tlefort ·
BIG PROBLEMS!!! I'm running Win95 and it won't load. At times, it just locks up at the Win95 logo after it says "Starting Windows 95". Other times it will get all the way to error detection and prompting me to load in Safe Mode. I choose Safe Mode and then it locks up again. Since it wouldn't boot off the system drive, I tried the CD after changing the boot sequence. Then, it failed loading from CD. So I tried booting from a floppy. I was able to get a prompt, but the keyboard was frozen. I couldn't type anything. I'm out of ideas. Please help!!! A side note that may mean something to someone is that when I went into the BIOS to change the boot sequence, I was checking around and noticed that the system date was set at November 11, 2045!! I corrected it, but am perplexed as to how that happened. I've heard of really crazy things happening when the motherboard battery needs replacing. Again, please help!!
