emm386-win95

I have a 486 Dx, by Gateway, when I loaded win95 I had to do in the DOS mode. The computer was a freebe.  

The EMM386 is load loading.  It is in the win95/command directory.

The computer works fine, but I don't know why this is happening and how to correct it. I get a sceen that is in the DOS mode telling me of the emm386 problem, then it starts win95.  It is telling me that I have no emm386 manager.

Please be very specific, as I am kind of new to this stuff.

Thanks

Go to the Start Menu - Run - and type in Sysedit and then press the Return or Enter key. This program shows you what is in your config.sys file (among others) and will show what entry you have for your emm386.exe line (probably at the top). Copy down the line (exactly) and also the amount of memory (RAM) you have in your machine and then post the details back here as a comment.

If you have any problems doing the above you can contact me on :

The problem is most likely an incorrect emm386 line. We will know more when you post the comment.
