i finally got the computer working, but what happens is when i put a ram card into one of the two ram slots and i turn on the tower it doesnt do anything at all, i.e. the moniter / keyboard / mouse dont react at all, and the system only works when i take the card out of the damaged slot ... is there a way to fix this?

How did you determine that the problem is a faulty socket and not the module?

the module was working in one slot and not the other ... and i fixed that problem now but another come up ... im trying to install a network card but everytime i plug in the card in a different PCI slot and then turn the computer on but it doesnt install anything. it doesnt even show signs of a network card. and i thought at first it was a faulty network card but i tried two different cards in all the 3 slots but none worked. 2 cards and they both werent detected by the system. how can i fix this?

It would help if you would tell us what motherboard you are using, and what OS.

If you want to see just what is being recognized by your computer while it is operating, download Everest Home Edition, it's freeware, and will tell you most everything you want to know.
