Foxconn G31MXP won't boot up

I have a Foxcoon FC-G31MXP motherboard that I switched cases for recently since my old case was too small for a PCI card that I need to install. However, the computer just won't boot anymore. No power whatsoever infact - no LEDs, no fan spinning. I am using the following components: CoolerMaster TC101 Case w/ TM500-PSSR-F1 500W PSU Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 7200 RPM SATA HDD IDE CD/DVD Drive Crucial CT12864AA667.M8FE 1 GB 240 PIN DIMM (just 1 stick) I've tried clearing CMOS and replacing the CMOS battery, but no success there. Any solution would be highly appreciated.

SOURCE: Sound cable connection

Look more closely at your motherboard, for a 4-pin "PC Speaker" label.

The "HD Audio" is _OUTPUT_ (left front, sub-woofer, right front, left back, right back) to Surround Sound speakers.

SOURCE: Foxconn G31MXP & G31MV motherboards

A friend of mine used to build computers for his boss. I stopped by to see him one day, and he had problem getting one booted up- he'd swapped out everything, as it unfurled, except the power supply. I asked him if he had another one, and when he swapped it out the computer booted and ran perfect. Other than checking all your connections, I guess the video board could be suspect. Here's a blog about this exact problem:
In a similar problem, the board turned out to be faulty:
Good luck, and hope this helps you.

You need the manual which you can get here for your board, and download it at the bottom of the page, once you have the manual, then you should see the connections. The other way to tell is to look closely on the board, it might say which goes where right by the connection on the board, and then the wires should say on them what they are, and you can put them where the board says, if you have that on your board.

CMOS checksum error

Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

I was updating my BIOS on my Foxconn G31MXP when I had a power surge and the pc shut down now it won't boot up and just makes a beeping noise what can I do to get back into it

the only thing you can try to do would be too take the cmos battery out of it however chances of that fixing the problem are slim thats why manufactures warn not update firmware unless needed because many things could go wrong leaving you with a useless motherboard

What Core 2 Quad processor are you trying to use? Most likely it's not supported by that board due to voltage limitations.
