    Windows ME question

    Can someone please educate me on this. I have a friend who says that Windows ME has trouble seeing/utilizing more than 256MB of memory. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Regards,

    Is it WinME having trouble seeing/utilizing it or is it the motherboard?

    From what I understand, he says it is ME.

    I can't give you an opinion on the article as the link doesn't work, but i can tell you win me can use up to 1 gigabyte of ram, albeit badly. There is a known problem with "out of memory" errors when you have more than 512 meg of ram - its easily fixed though, if thats your problem - let me know.

    windows is developed poorly (as we all know). too much memory can be just as bad as too little. i kind of follows a normal curve distribution around 320mb ram. i would not advise anyone to have less than 128 or more than 512mb. when you get too much memory it slows windows down bc there is too much memory for windows to address it all. its like having a 6 story hotel and only using the bottom floor yet you clean all 6 floors every day. (that was kind of a bad example. sorry i cant think of anything better)

    anyways, it goes something like that.
