  1. Hello,

    I successfully installed win 95 on that quantex (turned out the floppy drive errored during setup, so i put a new one in it.)

    Anyways, it keeps erroring, it used to start just fine, but now whenever it starts it goes to the windows 95 splash screen, then suddenly says "it is now safe to shut down your computer" When i reset it, it goes to a list to start it in safe mode. It starts up fine in safe mode.

    Also, i connected a cd drive, and it detected it, and showed up. Suddenly now, it won't show up.

    Who's dinosaur is this? Certainly not yours. Can you install Windows 98SE on the relic?

    Its mine, i had it sitting in the back of my room for a while, and got around to fixing it now.

    I think it needs to re-install windows with a real copy of 95 diskettes, the ones i used was from a old 95 laptop i have.

    It won't handle a Win 98SE upgrade? If you stick with Win95 all you will have is a big paperweight. Windows 98SE would be a smaller paperweight. The last version of 95 was C... do you have that version?

    What is a Quantex? If you are referencing an older thread, point us to it
