    One day about a two weeks ago I turned on my computer and it had no sound. I tried to fix the problem by updating/reinstalling drivers, changing settings. The sound showed that it was working but I couldn't hear anything through my built-in speakers or my headphones. So I decided to reinstall windows. After I reinstalled windows there was still no sound! So I figured it was a hardware problem. So I open up my computer and did something stupid.
    I bought the computer used from a store a little over a year ago and it was custom made. It has two extra USB ports installed in the back (picture below) so I removed them and to make it easier to remove I removed the video card, I put the video card back in started the computer and the computer won't boot. Automatic repair starts up but everything I click on the computer says it can't do it! Not even reinstalling windows. I put everything back in the way it was but it still won't work but now I discovered that I get a black screen with a cursor and I've had this problem before! When I bought the computer to lower the cost I bought it without the video card it come with because I had a gtx 750 at home. Now when I got it home and put in the video card I got the black screen with a cursor! With the help of my brother we somehow fixed the problem but we don't know what we did! So any help would be greatly appreciated!
