Hello SHUBHAM, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

You should be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before you made this change to undo it.

Hello Brink, sorry but I did not think that this type of change could be undone via system restore. If you are correct, then that is a much simpler and straight forward solution, than the one in the quoted thread.

If a system restore doesn't help, then yeah you could open a command prompt at boot using Option Three below to set it back.

Windows Start Up Fail after changing msconfig maxmem - help!
I had problems installing Winzip on my machine. An on-line help recommended going to msconfig and reducing maxmem to 256. Having done that, Windows now fails to start up. Startup Repair doesn't fix it. I have tried system restore to before the Winzip downloads. Still fails.
