Hi, I have a Compaq Prolinea 575e and currently I upgraded it to 32MB RAM. I understand DOS can only read a certain amount and uses an expanded memory service called emm386. But I currently have a problem with a lot of games or applications I use in DOS that say there is not enough memory to run stuff. I will soon post logs such as 'mem' and my autoexec.bat/config.sys files once I have copied them over from the PC to this forum - I'm just hoping someone can help or provide any sort of suggestions in the meantime. Many thanks!

To add, I've found the following sources:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOS_memory_management
http://www.cubic.org/docs/configuring.htm
http://www.vogonswiki.com/index.php/DOS_memory_management

But these still do not help me in a very clear way on whata the best memory management solution would be for gaming and using the 32MB memory I have installed for either all applications/drivers/services or what the best way to set it up would be.

Any answers still greatly appreciated! Many thanks
