The purpose of RAM is report available memory.

If your system has Expanded Memory, the following will be
reported:

Free Used Total

DOS conventional memory: 514k 126k 640k
EMS 3.2 expanded memory: 288k [18] 736k [46] 1024k [64]

(The number in brackets is the EMS paged memory.)


If your system has Extended Memory, the following will be
reported:

Free Used Total

DOS conventional memory: 514k 126k 640k
EMS 3.2 expanded memory: 288k [18] 736k [46] 1024k [64]
Extended memory present: 512k


And if EMS is present, but a memory manager is not loaded, you
will get the following:

Free Used Total

DOS conventional memory: 514k 126k 640k
Extended memory present: 512k
Expanded memory present: 1024k
[EMS driver NOT loaded]


A system with only conventional memory will report:
