Maybe you could download one of the free boot discs such UBCD (that can be found by google searching on your gaming PC, and written to a disc on that if you have a CD writer). I'd use the command CHKDSK /F in DOS if possible, because although scandisk is native to Windows 95, it's not as good at finding errors as chkdsk is. The /F option tells chkdsk to automatically fix anything bad that it finds, either in boot records, faulty files etc. I usually attach drives like yours onto an external USB hard drive adaptor, and then have a fully working PC do the repair scanning. If you dont have a USB adaptor like that, then the UBCD mentioned above has a variety of things for checking drives. Windows 95 was well known for suddenly getting the odd corrupt file for apparently no reason from what I recall. Serial mice ? lol, i remember them, I still have 4 in my collection of good old stuff (i'm a collector & engineer, that's my excuse). Hope you do get it running again, good luck with it.
