Have you checked the status of the device in the Device Manager?
Go to Start > Control Panel > Sound, video and game controllers and then the + sign, any yellow ! or red Xs showing?
Try updating your audio drivers http://support.gatew...=1&modelId=1579

the search box and then dxdiag.exe and then the Sound tab, any problems found there?
It may be pure coincidence that this has happened after the Ram upgrade by the way.

You used build in sound driver or external sound card ? I think is about sound driver. Try check if there any cd come with the motherboard if you used clone computer
Running Windows Vista...eMachines T3612...too slow as I had only 512MB so took it out and put in 2GB...runs great now, but I have no audio. I checked all the connections to my speakers and made sure all volumes were on and turned up...still no sound. Any suggestions? Thanks everyone!!

Go to Start and then to Control Panel
Right click on the Sound or Audio Devices and then click on Properties
At the top of the window click on Audio and what does it say for Default Audio Device?
Click on Playback and same information?
If audio is built on the motherboard then check the following if the above gives no positive results.
OK then lets make sure the audio is enabled in the bios.
Reboot the system and at the first post screen tap the Del key normally and it should get you into the BIOS
In there find either the Advanced, Onboard or Integrated Peripherals areas.
Using the keyboard arrow keys scroll down to the Audio entry and make sure it is Enabled and if not then look at the bottom of the screen it will tell you how to adjust or modify the values to Enable it.
When done make sure to click F10 to Save and Exit with the setting.
You will then be asked to click Y to Verify the Save and Exit
The system will now reboot with the new settings saved.
Let me know if this helps.
