View Full Version : Missing HIMEM.SYS on restart



24-11-1999, 01:56 PM
My brother in law's Compaq model 4503 computer is bringing up the message:

'Himem.sys file is missing. Check that it is in your windows directory.'

The message only comes up when the computer is restarted - say after a software installation or other resart. It won't come up if the computer is started up normally.

Windows 98 was recently clean installed on this computer.

The machine specs are: Win 98, Pentium 166MMX; 48Mb RAM, 2.1GB H/D.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks
