First thing when diagnosing a desktop computer problem, is check the Power Supply.

Really.

A Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, can also emulate software problems.

(Emulate software problems; The bad hardware (Power Supply), can also make it seem like it is a software problem. It isn't. It's a hardware problem -> Power Supply )

1) Is your computer dirty inside? This will make the computer not work, and also 'kills' Power Supply's.
They overheat, and components inside the Power Supply fail.
(Go bad)

Know this;

1) If ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what Processor it is.

Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L?

LGA 775 processor socket, and an Intel G31 motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Scroll down to G31 in the left column.
Also go back to the Gigabyte Support page.
Click on the Support & Downloads tab.
(Overview / Specification / Support & Downloads / FAQ / etc)

Click on the blue - CPU Support List tab.
(CPU Support List / Memory Support List / Accessory )

Your motherboard can support Processors that use 35 Watts all the way up to 135 Watts.

Point?
If you have a Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail; you may see LED lights light, and fans spin; but there will NOT be enough power to turn the Processor ON.

Do you have a multimeter to test the 3 main voltages?
OR;
Do you have a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply; to use for a temporary test unit?

Also;
When working on your computer FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
If you are not aware of what Anti-Static Precautions are, please post back in a Comment.
DO NOT work on your computer until you do.

Remove all Ram Memory modules. ('Stick')
Clean the gold plated contact pins with a pencil eraser.

If using an eraser on the end of a pencil; and not a solid eraser; refrain from letting the metal band of the pencil; touch the gold plated contact pins.

Rub across all gold plated contact pins, and up, and down. BOTH sides.
When finished use air to remove the eraser dust.
You can use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Handle the Ram Memory module by the BODY.
The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

Reinstall the Ram Memory module/s. Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

SOURCE: my GA-G31M-S2L gigabyte motherboard still

Are you using the integrated video on this board or do you have a dedicated video card?
Also, you could try disconnected the speakers on your system and check if the sound still persists to further isolate your issue.

My Mainboard is GA-8VM 533 and when switchon the power CPU fan can run but there is no BIOS message on Screen.


if this is a new system make sure you have the cpu and memory installed correctly and that they are both compatable with you motherboard. these issues are also common if one or the other or both burned out. also make sure your video card is installed correctly and your monitor is plugged in all the way.

I have a problem with my board Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L, encounter no display & no beeps even though I remove the RAM in the board please help me to solve this problem?


Do the fans still start spinning ? And did you do a CMOS clear ?
You should also try booting it without a graphics card and/or any other audio/network card, etc, so you only have the CPU and motherboard (and also try it with 1 RAM bank and without). When it beeps, it's probably alright (implicating other failing hardware).

When you hear no beeps at all (but the fans spin), it's pretty likely that the board is gone. You might want to doublecheck the powersupply and CPU nevertheless.

Im not sure how much ram to use with my motherboard.


Your board can support 4Gb of RAM.

CLICK HERE for the SPEC sheet.

HERE is the memory support list, there is only 1 type of KINGSTON 2GB stick that is listed as compatible.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS as there are some known issues with this board and certain 4GB RAM configs as well as fixes for 1TB HDD space errors.

Always a good idea to make sure you have the latest XP service pack. In general, XP only recognises 3Gb RAM but mine runs fine with 4 in it.

When you crash, is there any Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or any other output to your monitor or does it just shut down with no warning or error code or anything? If this is happening then you may be getting a CPU OVERTEMP condition.

Have you recently upgraded other components as well as your RAM?
