    Sorry but your post is very hard to understand .... punctuation would help considerably. While you were changeing you cpu cooler the motherboard made a sound??? Was the thing plugged in while you were working on it? What exactly did you do to the LAN card? Without it you will not have any network places and even if you had them showing they would be inaccessible.

    Hi sorry if i wasnt that clear in my last post well umm heres wat happened i change my cpu cooler and attached everything and then when i on my computer it made an irritating sound,so i asked my friends wat was that sound coz i couldnt figure it out well they told me to off my lan card so i off it in the cmos,o ya by the my motherboard is the p31 which has a onboard lan card,well back to wat i was saying so i off the lan card in the cmos well the sound did go away but when i accessed my OS i noticed my "my network places" folder was empty but it wasnt like that before i was thinking maybe i must have hit the motherboard while changing the cpu cooler to make the lan card have some problems any ideas on how to fix my "my network places" folder?coz i know shouldnt there be a folder there named "shared documents"?any ideas on how to fix this?

    Hmm, Im still confused about this sound. Was your board plugged in while you were working on it?

    Have you enabled LAN in the BIOS again yet?

    umm the sound was from the lan thats what they said well when i off the disabled the lan in the bios thankfully the sound was gone,so after awhile i decided to turn it back on and it didnt make any sound so i checked out the networking of the OS if the was any effect on it,but then i saw my "my network places"folder was empty as i said in my previous post any ideas on how to let my shared documents show in "my network places"?and no my cpu was off when i was working on the cpu cooler.and the sound was different it was like a high pitch beep well at least its gone now.it was really weird

    Are you still able to access the internet with the compter in question? Have you looked at "device manager" to see if your lan is correctly identified and installed?

    I'm curious .... Are you using Babblelfish to translate from another language? I really hate to be a grammer nazi since I'm not all that great either but please, if you want to be understood, use some punctuation and proof read what you write. Fragments such as "when i off the disabled" are pretty much impossible to decypher into coherent English. Please do not take offence. Most of us are willing to assist you if we can understand just what you are trying to say.

    ooopppss ehehehe sorry about my english and dont worry about it i welcome feedback,and sorry about my last post i was kinda in a hurry to post it,umm...what i meant by i "off the disabled " was that when i disabled the onboard lan the sound disappeared hehe sorry about my english,i wonder why did i put a "off" there hehe,well i am able to access the inet.but what is weird with my computer is that when i connect my pc with several pcs i cannot see they're shared folders i need to press the "view all computers in the network" not like before where it shows automatically,is something wrong here?or is it just a few setting changes?

    Are you all on the same workgroup? If not you need to be, then yes you should be able to see all PC's in the network once you hit View all PC in the network/workgroup
