extended memory problems

You need to free up conventional memory.

Try removing or commenting out all drivers that are loading in your ' config.sys ' and 'autoexec.bat ' files. You can comment outs lines in these files by placing a ' REM ' in front of the line you wish to comment out.

I would start by commenting them all out. Then if you have applications or devices that will not run you can just uncomment the lines that you need.

You didnt say wich OS you are using ( Win9x, Win NT, etc..) but, i can tell you that Win9x does not need to have CD-ROM drivers loaded at a DOS level.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

make sure that dos is loaded in upper memmory
block area this should free up your convential memmory. if you are using an old cd-rom make a menue in your config.sys file that will load drivers when you ned them and when you dont need them.also notethat extended memory is slower than expanded memory. remove any programs from your desk top you dont use this will also use memory check you windows swap file vertual memory make sure there is enough for windows.
