cmd box: find out how much RAM there is

7 posts in this topic

Hi!

I'm searching for a preferably internal command in DOS box which tells me how much RAM there is at all in the system. Is there anything like this? Or will I have to use an external tool?

thx

yeah, I knew that already. But mem tells me only how much conventional ram (640 k) is there, not the total amount of RAM in system.

Doesn't DOS suffer from the 640Kb barrier? (And it was Bill Gates who said "640Kb should be enough for anyone" - what does he know?!!) I'm not sure you can find out from DOS the total memory available.

:lol: Yeah, you're so **** right! And unfortunately you might be right with what you've said about the total amount of RAM. :( But doesn't anyone know a little freeware tool?

I use msinfo32 to generate a report file and grep the memory size out of that.

You could use a vbscript/wmi combo. It's very easy...
