Dell e520 running Vista fully updated has no sound
Depending on the audio hardware configuration, you may have a hardware conflict.
If you have an expansion sound card (Usually a Soundblaster card in the slots below the video card) then you need to ensure the integrated audio in BIOS is DISABLED.
If you have no expansion card, then ensure the BIOS Audio device is ENABLED.
If integrated and no device found in Device Manager, turn it off in BIOS, reboot then reenable it and see if it is detected.
If issue still continues, try flashing the BIOS and see if that resolves. If no change, you may end up getting an expansion audio card or resintalling Windows to resolve.

I was trying add another monitor and now there
Good day sir, hi it seems you are having problems with your monitor. Let us first try to run the PC using only one monitor.
- PC is off, remove your 2nd graphics board by opening the side panels, locate the CMOS jumper, usually its near the battery, the setting is 1 2, place the jumper to 2 3 momentarily, after about 3 seconds, place it back to 1 2. If you cannot find the CMOS jumper, just remove the battery.
- connect the monitor to its built in graphics vga.
- turn on pc, as this point you should see the video on your monitor.
- PC is off, place back your battery if you have remove it. check to see if your 2nd graphics board is good, test it on other pc.
- if your 2nd graphics board is good. Install it on the motherboard. connect a second monitor.
- power on the PC, you should see on one monitor the boot up, and on the other monitor a message. just wait for windows to boot up. you will see the other monitor be an extension of your desktop.
- Make necessary settings for both monitor. Thats it.
If you still cant operate both display, do it several times. If still nothing happens review your work, get help from a friend who knows.

Dimension e520 - disconnected computer to get it
components of a home network include some kind of service (broadband or dial up) a modem, a router (wire or wireless) and computers.
If the computers are wireless, you use a wireless router. You can mix wire and wireless, obviously..
If you do this, the routers should be peer to peer (dont use the up link on the downstream device. ) One device must be plugged into the modem ... on that device, use the uplink.
If you are looking for a software package to manage your network magic, free to download and evaluate, After the free period you pay $ or continue to use the package but with fewer features.
NM is excellent with diagonostics, device sharing, security and tacking intruders as well as a lot of other things. I use the paid pro version.
Thanks for posting your question on FixYa.com

We changed over to bt last week and since then we
This method will hard reset the wireless and LAN drivers back
default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the
modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2
minutes for them to settle down.
Right click "computer" select "manage"
and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network
adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the
device, then right click on the LAN (it should be under the name Realtek) and unistall that, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless
card & LAN card and install the drivers for it, these will appear in the system
tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.
Also check your internet speed, you can do this at speedtest.net.
If the download speed is less than 1Mbps (megabit per second) they you are going to have real difficulties getting and staying on the internet. If that is the case you will have to take this up with BT as the lines maybe old and BT need to replace them.
This could have been the initial problem that the Post Office had.
Good luck and please let me know how you get on.
