Re: sound card and memory
The Gateway E-3000 can only support up to 66Mhz SDRAM 256mb. Putting anything else you will get an error and you will be not be able to do anything else till you remove the extra memory.
As for sound the easiest to do for a computer that old is buy a sound dongle (circa $5.00)
Just put in any USB port, and you have sound (pretty good also, I have used these in the past and found to very reliable)

you may have dislodged something as you carried out the upgrade - Check all the cables are seated correctly - also check the memory is correctly seated
does the machine bleep at all this will give an indication of what the problem may be ------ the number and pattern of the bleeps
the next step would be to remove all unnecessary devices, like the CD , DVD , spare drives - getthe machine to a minimum state of just PSU, MOBO, CPU, Memory, harddrive, graphics and see if that boots
also as you have upgraded the video card can you put the old one back in....
Time for an upgrade my friend. Unfortunately sounds like your bios chip went bad. This happens sometimes and there is nothing you may have done. And unfortunately with a system that old you will be better off upgrading to a new computer.
The first place i would look -- check the new memory, make sure its the correct type and voltage for your motherboard. Next, check to make sure your ram are both the same speed, voltage , etc. some motherboards are picky about memory types and some require that paired memory be installed.
Reseat (remove and replace) the memory in it's slot, poorly seated memory can cause restarts or no-starts. try these and post again here if you need further assistance.
hi! there if your addibg a memory card check your memory speed if match to other memory card that are installed already,they should have same speed e.g DDR PC228 or SDR PC333 so check this out before installing.But if you replace the older one upgrading,switch off your computer open cover,there is slot there for your memory card bedide your processor,at both end there a lockway,unlock your memory card and pull it out all if you have several one,then insert on one slot if that is one memory card at 2gb lock it on both end.then swich on your computer check this out on your computer properties if there is change.how to do this left click my computer,click properties.regards
Please take one of the memory cards and try and try the same card in all the slots also try the second memory card. Also check if your getting the memory beep at the start up and dell diagnostic lights all the lights should be green
if your pc is old, it may not be compatible with that amount of memory.. check to see your are buying the correct type of memory, a lot of pc's vary depending on model.. be sure to push down firmly when installing the memory stick.. hope this helps
