    Let's start with some clarification, so that I can try to solve this problem better. 1.Are you SURE that there is no unused spacer under the motherboard, contacting the bottom of the motherboard? If you are using brass standoff's, and not plastic spacers, AND have a standoff NOT matched up to a mounting hole, it can touch solder joint/s on the bottom of the motherboard. 2.Are you using a SATA harddrive? Has a 7-pin bent elbow Data connector, and a 15-pin Power cable? IF so, DO NOT use a 4-pin whitish Molex power connector, with the 15-pin power cable! 3.What processor are you using? 4.What ram memory? 5.Are you using a graphics card, or plugging the monitor into the motherboard? 6.JPW1 is a square 4-pin power connector on the motherboard. It MUST have power as this is power for the Intel processor you're using. I know it's hard to read this, but these are questions, and not solutions as yet. Supply me some info, and I'll post a solution, or solutions.

If you install the processor and ram correctly and plug in the monitor you should get the BIOS screen. If not something is wrong with the 3 stuffs (mobo,cpu or ram) check also all the power sockets to the motherboard and graphics card.

Check your jumper settings on the motherboard and make sure they match specs
you may also try an external video card.

I installed a new G31M3 L V2 MOBO because my old one (same model) died. Also gone with it was the intel cpu (I guess because of the heat problem). With the new mother board I upgraded my CUP to an Intel...

Make sure that the Power connector are properly connected, also check if the CPU is properly seated to get POST from the Board, since the CPU is new as well as the board you can clear NVRAM on the board take the CMOS Battery out for a couple of seconds then put it back in the CMOS slot then try to turn the unit back on, also check all the rams if properly seated.

Brand new G31M3 V2 MSI motherboad, fresh out the box. I hooked up all the wires correctly (i triple checked them) and installed the new graphics card, wireless internet card, and tv tuner card, and...

Remove everything except CPU and 1 stick of RAM. Attach monitor to onboard graphics and under Integrated Peripherals in BIOS there SHOULD be option for display, it needs to be set to PEG so it looks for a PCIe graphics card first. If you still get no picture, DOA motherboard.
