Without special help, DOS recognizes a maximum of 640 kilobytes of RAM (random access memory) for use in running your programs. That 640K is referred to as conventional memory to distinguish it from other types of memory (upper, expanded, and extended) that have been invented to overcome DOS'S 640Klimitation. See RAM for a comparison of the different types of memory used in PCs.
