Problem when Windows restarts

By Aakash Shah ·
I have a rather old Compaq Presario 1620 laptop with Windows 98. I seem to have a problem warm booting the computer. It does not boot Windows but gives me an error at a DOS prompt:

HIMEM.SYS is missing.
Make sure that the file is in your Windowsdirectory.

I have checked my Windows folder, and the file HIMEM.SYS is there. The only way I can restart my computer is to do a cold boot. Could someone help me with this please. I would appreciate it very much. Thanks.

Your laptop displays at startup process the installed memory? Display the correct size always? Check the integrity of memory modules. Run some tests or check BIOS configuration.
