Yesterday when I open my computer I got the Blue Screen of Death in normal start up. So I try to start it on safe mode but an error occurred saying “himem. sys has detected unreliable XMS memory at address 02C02CO2 XMS Driver not installed”.
What kind of error related to himem. sys?
BSOD: Himem.sys error, XMS Driver not installed
The error can be related to either of these four: Missing himem. sys or emm386. exe, himem. sys or emm3886 are corrupted, Autoexec. bat and config. sys have conflicting data or programs, causing this issue or Memory in computer are bad or corrupt.
To know if both himem. sys and emm386 is in your computer system, type the following command in command prompt:
CD and press enter
CD windows and press enter
Dir himem.sys and press enter
Dir emm386.exe and press enter
If it says file not found you can copy it to another computer or the bootable floppy disk. You can also do this if these two are corrupt. Verify also if the config. sys is properly setup, it should be like this: DEVICE=C:WindowsHimem. sys or DEVICE=C:DOSHIMEM. SYS
If you encounter an error when booting on a bootable diskette it is more likely that there is a related hardware issue or a memory error on your computer. If a repair won’t work in solving this problem then you have to take your computer to a computer technician to fix this issue.
