Is there a maximum memory allowed in Windows ME?
My mother board will take 2Gb.
Must the two slots allowable on the mother board have equal sizes. There is nothing in the MB Manual about this

the OE Has nothing to do with the amount of memory on your mobo,as long as you stay within the mobo manufacturers guide lines,try to keep the memory the same make and speed ,ie pc100 or pc133, you can on most mobo,s mix but they will only operate at the lower speed

Technically the limit is 512 Mb RAM although it is possible to use more by tweaking.

As I understand it, windows 9x cannot 'address' more than 384mb of ram without a third party program, like memory manager.

Many thanks for the replies. It is quite clear. Not to put in more than 512

Add MaxPhysPage=30000 to cfg can persuade 9x to accept a bit more,but I had serious grief from trying a dual-boot with XP and 98se as I have 1Gb RAM.My post was added to by R4 who states he runs 98 with 1.5Gb's RAM.

Win9 can manage 512Mb, but above that,click here

I ran Win98SE on 512 MB RAM for a year with no problems.
