TPX & restarting the computer

Hello;

recently i bought a Pentium II 266MHz computer. i installed TP7 and i faced
the RunTime 200 Error, i solved it. but i faced another problem.

When i try to tun TPX.exe from DOS (Not DOS-Promt from windows) it will
restart the computer, but the Turbo.exe will run normal. i tried the memory
management, but on the old computer everything is OK.

i need help.

TPX.EXE uses Borland's DPMI manager, and it may do strange things with large
amounts of memory -- Borland's DPMI memory was meant for 286 architecture,
which only supports up to 16MB memory.

One possible way to help appease this is to add this line to your
C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT and reboot:

SET DPMIMEM=MAXMEM 8192

This will limit the DPMI server to use only 8MB of memory, which might help.
If this doesn't help, you may also get some results by adjusting the settings
for EMM386.EXE and HIMEM.SYS if they're being loaded in CONFIG.SYS.
