I am sure you did a reboot more than once, So lets make sure your plugged into the right plugs all speakers, Now have you went into you control panel and checked all audio properties, under sounds>audioplayback> Try doing a sound test and see if it resets you sound properties so that they work again. Also did you try your onboard card, or maybe it is the onboard card, If so did you try another set of speakers, Make sure also that no one muted something in the properties too, I don't know what you could have did to your sound card just by putting Ram in, I mean something can always happen but is highly unlikely and my just be something simple, "HOPEFULLY" If you have already tried those things write me back we can try more Its just getting a little long LOL Short Sweet and Simple I sure hope you get it going.

Remove the sound card from the board and put it back in. Enter the mixer, by clicking on the speaker icon at the buttom of the screen or going ito axcessories / entertainment / volume control
Click device and put your sound card as the default device..
If that dont work you might want to try remove the sound card and using your onboard audio or getting a new card..
just rememer to set what ever device you are using as your default device..

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
the specs can be found at this link
the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies
memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
i hope this helps --
