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?

Re: My sound card ?
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.
the Details Tab, you will find a Drop Down Box showing many Hardware
Details about the Device. Select the Compatible IDs option.
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Drivers for Intel products are available from the Intel website www.intel.com However this is a system level problem and so the drivers for your sound chips are most likely to be found on your computer manufacturer's website or you motherboard manufacturer's website, or if your sound card is external to the m/b, the sound card manufacturer's website. In any case you will need your operating system details.
PCI cards are hard to come by anymore. As for which is the best, the biggest question is what you plan on doing with it. If you are just doing internet surfing and basic email, any PCI video card you can find should work. If you are looking at doing any computer gaming, you may want to consider upgrading to a new PC.
Asking which of anything is the best is really a matter of opinion, but as far as the hardware capabilities for an older standard card go, this one has to be as good as it gets. (Actually, I'm a pretty impressed...I didn't know any PCI card could do what this does. Although it won't stand up to the bus speed of a PCIe card, or even an AGP card, if all you have is a PCI slot, this is your card!)
with the 64 mb graphics card i dont think that u can run VISTA if u want to run Premium version u need to get a higher graphics card atleast 128 Mb or above and for 1 gb graphics card pls check the manual of ur card first b4 buying it bcoz ur mother board may not support it but its a rare case when this happens but pls check b4 buying or let me know with the exact brand and model u r going to buy i will check it for u
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
