DOS and DDR memory Reading

Specs: DOS, AMD
Hello Everyone,

I have an interesting situation where I am needing to determine (in DOS) if there is a way to tell if my card has 2GB of DDR memory, or 4GB of DDR memory.
Does anyone know of a way to do this?

The only command I found that does this is: mem

If you want more information displayed, you many need a separate program to run in dos.

Unfortunately, the DOS version that I am running does not support that command. I see the following error message when running 'mem':

C:\> mem
Incorrect MS-DOS version

That message means you're running MEM from a different dos version than is currently booted on your system. So first thing you should do is tell us what two versions of dos are involved here.

And MEM isn't going to work. I just ran it from command prompt on XP and it only showed the first meg of ram. You'll need a dos-based third party utility.

Oh, and when you say 'card' I assume you mean system RAM.

Why not open the case & look at the label on the RAM sticks?

Thanks everyone for the help. It turns out that there is a program setxmsto.exe that when I run it it will let me know the exact # of kb that I have. Thanks everyone for your answers!

That looks like a device driver and not a system info utility but if it works for you that's great.
