Question about Evesham Computers & Internet
Unfortunately, Microsoft locks OEM copies of the Windows OS to a specific motherboard and CPU. Replacing the motherboard will cause this problem. If you had only added more memory, this wouldn't be an issue.
If you put in the new motherboard because the old one failed, you might be able to get Microsoft to reauthorize the license or give you a new one. As far as I know, you will have to call MS support and see what happens. (If you had the Full install version of Windows, you could move it to another machine/motherboard without the issue when the other computer isn't available.) If MS doesn't authorize the code, you will probably need to buy a new license of your version of Windows. (Windows 7 Home Premium OEM is $99; the full version would be $189. Other versions of Windows will be more expensive.)
One option is to find a member of a Windows User's Group or Technet subscriber who has licenses and install discs for various versions of the Windows OS. They may be willing to give you one of their extra licenses. This is very useful if your computer has an older version of Windows OS and you do not want to change OS versions. (Not all older computers can support a newer OS due to driver issues.)
I wish that I had better news for you.

The Dimension 2400 will hold a total of 2GB DDR Ram (2 x 1GB Dimms)
I don't sell RAM, but I do work on a lot of Dell's where I work.
Motherboard / Service Tag: to find out the service tag, when it's not printed anywhere on the box: Restart or power on the PC. When the pc is going thru POST, press the F2 key a few times, so the pc will boot into the BIOS. Depending on the age of the BIOS, the serivce tag should be displayed on the first page. If you can find the service tag, you can look up the original configuration on the Dell website.
Hope this helps

Hi See if I can Help.
XP does not always recognize all drivers need to install different system hardware. But if you go here & download your sound driver & install it should solve your issue.
Hope this fixed ya! Please rate. If you need further help comment back. Good Luck!
PS Here is your main system page I would go here & bookmark for latter use.

It does not appear as if that motherboard is still available for purchase. The only thing I can tell you to do is contact that Manufacturer directly and see if they can replace it. This will likely be very expensive though.
