I assume that you are at least on Win95 and can boot to a prompt. If not boot from a floppy (format /s on another system of the same type if you don't have a boot floppy).

#1. See if himem.sys is in the location specified by your config.sys file. If yes, try #2. If not, find it and point your config.sys entry there.

#2. Try checking the CD and expanding the himem.sy_ file from there to your hard drive at the location specified by your config.sys file(may be in a .cab - been a while since I've looked at 95).

#3. What is the entry on line 9?
