My sound card ?

I have and Intel Celeron Desktop (older one),I reformatted and all is great,But I dont have sound and there is a question mark in the device manager beside the Audio Multimedia Audio controller.I installed the ac 97 needed and still dont have sound.Could it be because I see a tiny cord in there that seems to be un- attatched from something that say SPEAKERS on the little cord?

Bacnblack, The first is that you need to identify which soundcard you have onboard and the second step is to install the correct driver for your device.
Please follow the below steps to identify the soundcard.

  • Go to the Device manager and check for the devices which display as "Unknown Devices".(Or the device that has a question mark besides it)
  • Right Click on the Device, Select Properties and Select the Details Tab.
  • Under the Details Tab, you will find a Drop Down Box showing many Hardware Details about the Device. Select the Compatible IDs option.
  • On Selecting Compatible IDs option, a list of corresponding values will be displayed at the bottom the the window. Select the first option from the list. In fact , you just need to select the value immediately after the DEV_ option (For e.g. PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1094&REV_01, here the value is 1094). Copy the Device ID from the above value.
  • Now, open and enter the Device ID in the device ID text search box (Search Device) provided and press Enter.
  • Now you can see exact match for a device that corresponds to the Device ID that has been entered.
After finding the exact match for your soundcard, search for the driver on the appropriate vendor website and install it.

The small unattached cord has nothing to do with the sound card as it is the system speaker (Don't worry about that)

good luck

HELP with with Intel celeron d 325

Phew, k3! A ton of questions and even more confusion going on here!

Firstly (love that non-word), your Motherboard accepts DDR Ram. Unfortunately, DDR2 will not be compatible. Won't work. Sorry. It does accept up to 2gb of DDR Ram, though.

Second, for Graphic Card slots, it has 3 x PCI slots (NOT PCI-Express), which are great for G-Cards. Maximum amount of memory won;t be affected by your MB, but by your processor and ram. As long as it has a PCI slot for a PCI card, you'll be good. Just be sure to turn off integrated graphics in BIOS settings.

Thirdly, good luck. Opening up the side of your PC can be daunting at first. Ensure you either have the patience to learn before you touch or have the money to continue learning as you go. >.o
