Question about Intel DG31PR Motherboard

1 Answer

I just put together a new computer, parts ordered over the internet. I have the dg31pr motherboard with a 2.2 GHz dual core processor and 2 GB of DDR2 RAM. I think everything is installed correctly, but when I turn the computer on, I get the motherboard light, the system light, and the fans start up, but I get no beep, and the monitor shows nothing whenever it is hooked up to the system. What could the problem be? And is there a way to fix it without replacing parts? Because I have no other parts, and I don't really have the money to get any...

    As far as I can see, all the cables are attached properly and all the devices are hooked up. I'm having trouble figuring out whether or not the power supply is enough for what I'm running, because this motherboard didn't come with a manual, and it's not coming up when I try to pull it up online. The RAM is all seated properly and is the right type. I didn't put thermal grease between the fan and CPU..where would I put it? On the CPU cover, between that and the heat sink? And would not having put the grease on cause the system to light up, fans running, but no beeps? Thanks for your help...

Check for the following:

1. Are ALL the power cables attached to the motherboard? There should be 2, The "long" one and the 4-square one the connects to the motherboard away from the master socket.

2. Are ALL the devices hooked up? Powering up w/o a load will cause this problem.

3. Are you using a strong enough power supply for your rig?

4. Is the RAM properly seated, as is the video card (if not an integrated one)?

5. If you installed the CPU and fan - did you put thermal grease between the fan and the CPU?

6. Does the RAM match and are they in the right sockets, as well?

    Not putting thermal grease on top of the CPU (between the CPU and heatsink) will cause the machine to lockup/shut down because of the immense heat build-up.

    WARNING: Running it as-is (w/o thermal paste) can KILL the CPU.

I have an Emachines EL1210-01e, and i was wondering what cpu i could put in it, without using too much power i want at least 2.8 ghz at miniium and dual or quad core


The Dual and Quad core processors will not fit on your motherboard because it does not have the CPU pins that the later CPUs.
You best bet is to upgrade the motherboard in your computer and the switch mode power supply.
OR
Get a new desktop computer.

I have 9600 gt Graphics Card on Intel DG31PR with dual core processors & 2 GB Ram. While I starting My PC after 2-3 days then PC started but there will no display at all, hdd led not blink but pw led...


It's the motherboard, the BIOS forgets that there are components attached to the board and can't detect them.
Time for a new motherboard, this one is unfixable and it you wait too long it will fail while you use it with who know what consequences.

You can also use any other intel 775 socket processor as well. The dual cores are at the top of the list for performance that are compatible with that board, but if you're looking for a cheaper solution, I have that board with a 3GHz pentium 4 and it runs great. Here's a list of all the processors you can use.
Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 2.80 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel 'Core' Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Can some one please let me know the name of the motherboard supporting Pentium 4 1.5 Ghz processor as well as Intel Core duo series of processors. Thanks, Ajay


The chips to which you refer are incompatible with respect to the socket used for each as well as the fact that Core duo and Pentium 4 1.5 GHz chips are from separate generations, the latter having been obsolescent since 2003. Therefore, there is no single motherboard that supports both, and the Pentium 4, Socket 478 boards can be obtained from various aftermarket sources.

Here is an example of the kind of board you need for your Pentium 4.
