Dell sound card problems

Installed new Memory (2G) in my Dell 8400. Now THere is no sound. No other changes. Device Manager tells me that all sound devices are working properly. Have rebooted & taken sound card out & reinserted. Not muted. Speakers on - slight sound when you plug into machine.

    Try a system restore check point.

    Restored to June 1 - got sound! Then installed updates from Microsoft (14 of them), no sound now, and system is very slow. I'll try another restore, and install updates one at a time. However, I'm going on vacation and may just walk away from this until I return. I'll keep you posted. Thanks.

    Try to narrow down which up-date is causing the sound error and skip that up-date. :)
