Was the RAM matched? Same brand, size, etc.? What OS are you running? What's the computer model? What's your shoe size?

We need to know much more than that if we're to fix it. :-)

All broken harted "agreed" under duress to kill my files ( that I loved like my children by the way )
and proceeded to set up my OS. All was "looking OK" when suddenly Ohh horror.. NO AUDIO!!
I have worked on restoring the audio to my PC because the stupid new setup "removed" my
Audio Device Driver or its hidden in such a way that the miracle of the 21 century (read computers)
How we will ever progress when silly things like this one conspire against us this way? every day....
so I remove the PC cover and looked for the stupid sound card.......... there is none!
I don't even hear the system sound... (scary)
By now I'm tired tf typing (look at the time !!!! )
Dell XPS 400 (pos)
OS is Windows XP professional (what ever the heck that means)
I bought it from manufacturer in 12-25-2006 (I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE to say to describe her)
PLEASE if anyone finds my brains.. return them to me at.... (my e-mail address or post it here)
