yeah that's it.
if it's set to auto, then it should be enabled.
go into device manager under "sound, video and game controllers" and tell us what you see.

ok i see:

Sound, Video and game controllers
Audio Codecs
Legacy Audio Drivers
Legacy Video Capture Device
Media Control Device
Video Codecs

*i remember it saying my AC97 onboard sound detail there, and its not there anymore

i think im just gonna go out and by a decent sound card,

Because i just played a game which used to have quite poor performance on my computer, but with my cpu overclocked to 3.1GHz it plays perfectly well (without sound)
i think i read somewhere that this is because its like a huge weight off my mobo that onboard sound is disabled.
am i right?

RAM is not pricy at all, compared to other computer parts.
