If you have 384 Mb RAM, you've got about 383 Mb extended memory, which should be more than enough (Windows 98 runs perfectly in 32 Mb). So obviously something is wrong.
1. Post what MSKB article you read about this error, what you tried and what happened.
2. The contents of \config.sys (use type \config.sys after booting in MS-DOS)
3. The output of the mem-program (type mem after booting in MS-DOS). I'm sitting behind my trusted Win 95 computer now, it has good old mem in c:\windows\command, and I assume Windows 98 also has it. With me, it shows (run from the command prompt in Windows):
- 640 kB conventional memory
- 82 kB upper memory
- 384 kB reserved
- 48.0046 kB extended (XMS)
It's a mystery, because I only have 16 + 32 = 48.0 kB total, and also a mystery to have 47.884 KB of the extended memory free while have two windows of IE open, but still it might be useful to get a view of your system.
I boot up my pc and keeep getting the following message and windows 98 will nt load:
NOT ENOUGH EXTENDED MEMORY AVAILABLE TO RUN WINDOWS
and I cannot boot into windows.
I tried the Microsoft knowledge base solution for the error message but it didn't work.
