Did you use the recovery disk that came with your system? Often you need support files that are on them.

You could try contacting the company that made your system to see if they still offer a recovery disk (Windows 95 is very old).

Hemanth Srinivasan,

When Microsoft release Win95 Processing architecture was 16bit which runs 386 and 486 Intel chips. win95 system require RAM is 4MB, To achieve optimal performance they recommended 8MB RAM, Microsoft announced win 95 can support unto 2GB of RAM capacity (theoretically) but OS got failed to start on 480MB RAM capacity. as Jimfixer mentioned on his answer, i'm agreed with him and recommended you to run Win95 on 256MB RAM capacity or less. this is one point Microsoft's theory didn't applied whit practical situation
