Ga-h61m-s2v-b3 not coming on using power switch

I agree with Mike, but would like to add a couple of things. I had the same problem with a Gigabyte board (new install) and found that I had to change the CMOS battery. I put in a new batter, and "voila" it worked fine after that. Also, not knowing your level of experience, make sure the front panel connections are on correctly. Generally speaking, if you look at the lettering on the plastic ends that plug into the board pins on the front panel connector, the lettering should face the edge of the board and not be facing the middle of the board. That too has caused a similar sounding problem in the past. Other than these two potential solutions, more information is definitely needed.

I have uploaded the most recent Skype version and now cannot use my Skype connection. I am able to see and hear my contact but they have no vision or sound from me

On the new skype the mute and video buttons are moved around. Just make sure that you are not accidentally muting yourself and check whether the video button turns you camera on and off.

If neither of these are the problem, go into the skype preferences and click the Audio/Video tab and check that your audio and video adapters are correct in the drop down menus.

I cant herar when I talk with my friend with the skype. I tested my headphones. they are ok. What is the problem in my skype?

you most likely checked all the obvious settings, checked, volume control, within Skype it is not on mute.
also within Skype, you can also perform audio and video testing, to confirm the issue is not from your end.
If this still fails, and you can not hear the other party ... the issue may be at their end. They will need to check their settings and skype settings.

I have an intigrated motherboard, I've changed speakers and installed a new sound card why am I still getting a distorted sound...even from start-up

the mother board may be the problem it has happened to me before i checked all the wiring and all the slots and made sure everything was plugged in correctly, i also took the clock battery out this resets the mother board and it can solve small problems like this one unplug it from the wall when you do this to make sure it resets everything then put it back together after about 5 min and it should work properly again
