Check the mother board manufacturer it will determine the memory limit,I am using Intel 440MB,with a 66mhz bus and WIN98,with 128mg memory and this is my limit due to bus speed.

Hi!

Win 95 is limited 64Mb RAM and canno't use anything above this limit.

/Hasse
PS! It has nothing to do with your busspeed. D.S.

Windows 95 can address up to 4 gigabytes of memory, but in reality you are limited to what the motherboard will hold.

Since I'm not sure what the question is, I'll relate an incident I ran into a while ago.
I had a client who installed an older windows application. This application overwrote the HIMEM.SYS file in his Windows directory with an older version. HIMEM.SYS is loaded as part of the Windows 95 boot procedure. This older version forced Windows 95 to only recognize 16M RAM. By replacing the file with the version that came on the Windows 95 cd, Windows was able to recognize all the physical memory on the computer.
