Extended memory

Extended memory

In my Prosignia 500 is 64Mb of original memory installed.
All test and install programs said: all ok.
But in DOS or Win Me is only 16MB visible.
Why?

Re: Extended memory

You must be using an older version of DOS that has a memory manager that only sees 16 MB of extended memory. Upgrade the DOS OS to version 6.22 and add the memory parameters in the emm386.sys configuration line in the config.sys file, so that all available memory is used. Use the "help emm386" command at the DOS prompt to get a list of the memory parameters.
