My system will lockdown and upon reboot it will also lockup...but after waiting a period of like 2 hours it will reboot just fine. I have added no new hardware to cause this problem. The tempature is normal on the cpu and video card and neither are overclocked. The computer is 2 yrs old.

Thank you

The could be a program that is corrupting your system, I suggest to update the your windows 95 go to Microsoft website at, You may also update your antivirus defenition and then make a full scan and scan your BIOS with a bootdisk anitvirus.

Also place a shortcut of dr.watson at the startup folder or open drwatson by typing at the run dialog box and check the folder of \windows\drwatson\and look for a file watsonXX.wlg (XX is any number), and see the report and then report this errors to Microsoft website at

Also make sure the you don't have no many program running at the same time, reduce the system tray which is at the right corner of your task bar and also at the startup folder.

when you boot try to go at safe mode by pressing f8, and open the system configuration utility by typing config.sys at run dialog box, then at general tab choose the selective startup option and select one and click ok and reboot, then select the other check after you find out which file is causing the problem.
