Resolving Memory Address Conflicts

Resolving Memory Address Conflicts

The automatic configuration program might change the memory address space used by some hardware and software options. The new address might conflict with addresses defined for use through the expanded memory specifications (EMS). (EMS memory is used only in the DOS environment.)

If a memory conflict exists, one or more of the following could occur:

You can resolve these conflicts in one of the following ways:

Changing the Software Configuration

The best method of resolving memory address conflicts is to change the software configuration by changing the address defined by the EMS driver.

For conflicts caused by XMA2EMS (DOS 4.0) or EMM386 (DOS 5.0) in the CONFIG.SYS file, refer to the DOS documentation. For conflicts caused by an expanded memory manager other than the one supplied with DOS, refer to the memory manager documentation.

 NOTE:    To view the addresses used by the installed hardware and
           software options, go to the Main Menu, select Set configuration then
           select Display memory map.

Changing the System Configuration

An alternative method of resolving memory address conflicts is to change the address of the conflicting hardware option by selecting Change configuration from the Set configuration program. Before changing adapter addresses, identify the addresses used by the EMS driver. Then set the adapter to addresses that do not conflict.

 NOTE:    These conflicts can occur because the automatic configuration
           program sets up only the hardware. It does not consider the operating system or
           application requirements. If you run automatic configuration after changing
           an address, the addresses you changed will be set back to their default values.
