Subject: FLASH: [OT] PC Memory
From: Eric Stewart

I'm sorry about the OT but this is driving me crazy. I recently, last month,
installed more memory in my 450Mhz PIII, from 128 to 256MB of SDRAM, and am
running Windows 98 Second Edition. I use Windows Resource Meter to monitor
my resources, since I started doing this my number of crashes has gone from
5-10 an month to 1 or 2.
Now for the problem. After installing the second 128MB of ram I see
absolutely no change in performance. I run the same number of application at
a time as I did with only 128MB and I still run out of memory at roughly the
same time. Am I wrong in assuming that since I have doubled my memory, that
I should at least get a 50% increase in resources and 100% at most? Does
Windows 98 SE not take of advantage of more than 128MB of memory, so the
other 128 isn't even being used? Are there any configuration changes that I
need to make or does windows automatically configure the OS to handle more
memory? I have exhausted myself trying to find out these answers, can anyone
tell me what is the problem, or if there is any?
