Got a real mystery here folks. Got a friend with a Dimension 8400. He has turned into into a dedicated DOS box for a project. He is running MS-DOS 7.10 on an 8 GB flash drive on the Dimension, booting as an HDD. The DOS machine has a 10 GB hard drive.
Basically, for some reason…without any programs running it hogs all the RAM. He is trying to install a Soundblaster Card but he cannot because there is no memory Free. How do we get DOS to stop hogging all the memory? What is going on here?
I’ve included an image for your review.
