Original Problem Posted by: liz on 11/14/2002|
I have a new laptop, am trying to install win 95 Hard drive has been formatted, i've set up partitions e.t.c and continued to fdisk and then onto setup. No problems on setup until first restart where it hung on the black screen with the blinking curser in top left hand corner. After switching it off and restarting it continued fine and carried on hardware detection, that went fine. Then it needed to restart and this is where it hangs, with the windows 95 logo, clouds in the background and the coloured bar underneath moving in the right direction. The win 95 disc itself is in good condition, is brand new. Have started it in safe mode and checked system menu, looked everything over, but cannot see a problem, although not everything can report problems as it is in safe mode. The only thing showing is a red cross through the modem card, which i removed before set up anyway to install after set up. I haven't attached a mouse or printer yet either as i have known that to make pcs hang in the past during set up.
Any suggestions as to what the problem might be??
