    So what does the "mem" utility say about where everything is?

    Looks ok to me. What system and version of Dos are you using?

    As Chuck said what does mem say?

    I'd just run memmaker if you are using MSDOS 6.x

    That should be invoked with "mem /d", which should map out memory pretty thoroughly.

    I had to change NOEMS to AUTO because NOEMS gave me an ERROR message.
    Here is the output of MEM /D

    I have a Dell inspiron 1525 and using Dos 6.22. I posted the output of MEM. Later I will try MEMMAKER again but before it didn't work.

    Jmdlcar its good practice to add your location. Could be someone close by who can assist. Welcome to vcf forum btw.

    Am i really reading your memory right? you have 64MB of ram installed?

    have you tried loading up MSD and looking at the memory map there? you should be able to force scan some areas of memory with "I:"

    strangest thing i ever ran into was dos going crazy on my memory for no reason everything is reading negetive for me but its working!
    another thing to try is the loading order of some of these drivers into high mem. check the largest block available and go from there

    The Dell 64bit was built in 2008 and has 4GB of memory. The Acer 32bit was built in 2009 and has 2GB of memory. The Acer will some in high memory. That why I need a older Computer there is a member that is helping me.

    Not sure how to do this.
