Topic: GS doesn't see all my memory

    GS doesn\'t see all my memory

    I have an AMD T-bird 1.33Ghz processor with 512Mb 133Mhz ram installed.
    GS diagnostics sees only 64Mb, and Gigapiano uses 65% of memory when loaded. When I had only 64Mb ram, I think I remember Gigapiano using up about the same amount of Ram. Can someone help with this problem?

    This sounds very odd. Does all other programs, and Windows, see all your memory?

    How would I be able to tell if Windows and other applications are seeing the memory?

    Go into Control Panel/System. On the first page there, it will tell how much physical memory it has detected.

    Thanks for the advice. Sure enough, even though the memory test (during boot-up) showed 512Mb, the control panel system page showed only 64 mb. I traced the problem to my config.sys and/or autoexec.bat files which had info from an old install of a Dos based Cad program. There were references to Emm386 and himem.sys which must have somehow gotten in the way.
    GigaPiano now takes up 9% instead of 65% of my memory.
    Thanks for the troubleshooting.
    Now for the real work.... making my virtual orchestra.
    Bye for now,
