First, clarification: the closest Gigabyte model is GA-G31M-ES2L... there is no "g31 m-es2L"

For this kind of question the easiest way to find the answer is from the manufacturer: Gigabyte

A quick search of their products results in:

which states that up to 800mhz DDR2 (PC6400) is supported
( 667mhz (PC5300) is also supported. )

Generally with motherboards, if a higher speed of memory is supported, the lower speeds are also supported.

PS: mhz times 8 yields the PCxxxx number, PCxxxx divided by 8 yields the mhz number

    -you just cannot
    mix and match the RAM speeds.
    As far as ram goes, ALL DDR2 Sdram ram sticks are the same length, no matter who
    makes them. your (Motherboard) can support PC2-5300 ram. It's also
    stated as PC-5300. Manufacturers differ with how they state it. When you see
    PC2-5300 you KNOW it's DDR2 ram.

No display in gigabyte g31m-es2l

Hello try to download the manual here:

You need adobe reader, to read the content.

Check all the power connections again, and the power supply for fault.

It may be there is nothing wrong with your motherboard. Often time, on-board graphics will be disabled with a discrete graphic card is installed. Check your motherboard manual to see if this is the case. You may also be able to find a setting in your system BIOS that allows you to enable the on-board graphics even if a discrete graphics card is installed.

Try also to reset the bios, by removing the cmos battery, and insert it again.

You can also try to add a graphic card, on the mainboard, in the blue PCI Express x16 slot.

Just make sure you have the driver, for your windows system.

Good luck

I can't find AGP aperture size in Integrated Peripherals

Hello the manual can be downloaded here:

Adobe reader, is needed to read the content.

My advice is to install a better graphic card, on the mainboard.

The mainboard has PCI-e socket.

This will give a much better performance.

ATI/AMD makes very good graphic cards.

Good luck

GA-G31M-ES2L supports 2TB Internal Hard Disk

Hello the manual can be downloaded here:

You probably just need to format the drive so you can use it.

The harddrive where windows is installed on must be connectet to sata 0 or 1. port
The drive you have mounted can you connect to the sata 2 port.

If the bios sees it its ok.

Here is some youtube video:

This shows you how to format the drive.But it depends on your windows system

Good luck

Mainboard GA-G31-ES2C Warning: Backup BIOS checksum error BIOS Auto-Recovering...

If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.
If you don't know the settings the should be one for optimal defaults - use that one. You will also need to reset the time and date.
Save, Exit and re-boot and everything should then work.
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
