For our purposes, Win95 handles extended memory dynamically. As for troubleshooting the problem, how much does it appear to see? Does it see the same amount consistently? Was there a time when all the RAM was available to Windows 95? Did you recently add memory? You can see the amount installed by right-clicking on My Computer and choosing Properties. With this info I can make a recommendation.

I phrased my question poorly.  I need to know what device= and that kinda entry to put in my config.sys file if it does not automatically recognize upper memory.  I lost it. I know I had it right once before.  But now I can't remember.  

Sorry

Config.sys entries for extended mem; try these for starters (additonal parameters for these line entries will vary from computer to compute):

DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=C:\WIDOWS\EMM386.EXE
DOS=HIGH, UMB

Hope it helps.
