ram= mmmm - nnnn Specifies a range of segment addresses to be used for UMBs and also enables EMS support. Other trademarks are the property of their respective holders. For example, you can control where EMM386 puts the EMS page frame or which segments it uses for EMS pages. nohi Prevents EMM386 from loading into the upper memory area.
But one thing: windows has always a built in file cache. On some computers, specifying this switch may have no effect or cause EMM386 to identify upper memory areas as available when they are not. On This Page Syntax EMM386.EXE Exit Expand Syntax emm386 [on|off|auto] [w=on|w=off] To display the current status of EMM386 expanded-memory support, use the following syntax: emm386 Parameters on|off|auto Activates the EMM386 device emm386 can now simulate EMS within the XMS.
again some history: The original PC in 1980 had a 8088/8086 which could handle 1MB of memory. To provide expanded memory and disable the page frame, you can specify frame=none; however, this may cause some programs that require expanded memory to work improperly. /p mmmm Specifies the address EMM386 may be able to provide additional EMS/VCPI memory (up to the amount specified by the memory parameter) if sufficient XMS memory is available when a program requests EMS/VCPI memory. If you specify the novcpi switch without specifying the noems switch, EMM386 does not disable VCPI support.
The default value is on. Notice that emm386 is normally installed by setup.exe with the highscan switch. When EMM386 expanded-memory support is off, the EMM386.EXE device-driver header is changed so that programs cannot use expanded memory. Valid values for address are in the ranges 8000h through 9C00h and C000h through EC00h, in increments of 400h.
But in the 80's there was a second standard for additional memory called EMS (Expanded Memory System). To free up all of extended memory until some of it is required for your EMS application, type: device=emm386.exe min=0 ram EMM386.EXE is an executable program, which can be run after To give MS-DOS access to the upper memory area but not to expanded memory, use the noems switch.

If your config.sys file does not include lines I talk about you can just add them. If you don't trust me you can modify them, but you won't see any better difference. 9) Full Hard Disks Everybody knows the date when their hard disk just has some The high memory area (HMA) must be available to enable Weitek coprocessor support.
It also allows drivers and TSRs to be stored in the upper memory area (UMA) between 640K and 1M. The same applies for the initializition of my sound blaster card. A sound blaster 16 and a gravis ultrasound. However, you cannot specify a filename for destination unless you also specify a single compressed file for filename.
The default value is 0. The statement enables an SCSI or EDSI controller to transfer information to programs that use the upper memory area or expanded memory. If you do not specify a range, EMM386 uses all available adapter space to create UMBs and a page frame for EMS. If you type mode co80 and press enter you will get the classic command prompt.
Top Of Page Expand Expands a compressed file. This option will show a nice menu at startup and you can choose between various configurations. So delete them.
