Question about Intel DG31PR Motherboard
I rescently bought an intel pearl creek clssic series DG31PR motherboard and after assembling it...nothing. The lights and fans went on but the BIOS didnt show because there was no video on top of that the regulatory BEEP was'nt produced by the motherboard speaker.
Oh and the LEDs come on when the power is turned on including the one's on the board and on the case as well. i've tried disconnecting and connecting numerous times....HELP!!!
I wished if someone had posted the answer, for I am having this problem.
When I switch on my dg31pr board (with c2d processor, 1 dimm on channel A, no other peripherals) I do not get any display. the processor fan starts led on the front panel indicate power - no beeps errors reported by BIOS. the display unit always stays in power saving mode (the display unit is fine).
How can I make the board send video output.

HA HA HA!!!! Finally my PC works i tried all your solutions hey map9966 and even went as far as disasembling the damn thing and taking it back to the shop. There i was told that it's absolutely fine and that these types of boards don't beep unless there is something wrong(imagine!!!!). So there i was looking like an idiot.....
Well i went back to my place assembled the damn thing, switched on the power and POP!!!! goes the PSU!! My blood went cold at the thought of me loosing all that money because i thought i'd fried everything. But luckly i had an old PC already assembled so i just switched parts with the new PC parts and connected my new parts(motherboard included) into the old case, crossed my fingers, switched on power and after a few seconds of nothing it came to life video and all, i went into bios and everything checked out.
So either i was connecting something wrong and the problem was with me or they switched the motherboard at the shop, so to save my ego i blame the shop lol.....thanx a mil tho'

I had a customer return a machine to me a week ago. Specs inc. this motherboard, a Dual-core p4 cpu, 2x512mb ddr2, a pcie video card. Problem - No Video on boot.
Removed video card, powered system up with VGA onboard connected to monitor... Simply sits there displaying the onboard display adapter info. Suspecting Mobo, remove the RAM from the board, but get error beeps (good). Replaced RAM, Reseated pcie card, can hear HDD booting, but no display. Removed the PCIe card again, plugged in on board VGA and system hangs when powered on, simply displaying the onboard adapter info. Tried jumpering the bios many times with no effect.
Given the error beeps when removing ram, I ordered a replacement PSU as motherboard has already been replaced in past. Replaced PSU and no different. System still hangs on the onboard display adapter info on power on. Sighed to myself, and reluctantly ordered a 3rd replacement motherboard, presuming there must be something faulty. Receive the new mobo and replace the old one. New PSU, New Mobo, same result. :(
Annoyed, I hope, that the CPU is fried. Order a new Processor. Replace the processor, same result. :(
Really annoyed, order more RAM, (We're now talking a COMPLETE new system in parts alone), and, same result.
I now have an existing customers hardware, completely useless. An entire 2nd set of hardware, brand new, just as completely useless as the customers hardware. Not to mention, $390 later.
Are these mobo's programmed to FRY THEMSELVES before June 2008?
I fail to understand what the problem is, or which part of these systems is even faulty!
At ONE, FLUKEY stage, I had the pcie card plugged into the customers original hardware, I could hear the HDD booting, so quickly pulled the monitor from the card, and plugged it into the on-board vga, and what do you know! DISPLAY! AND, ITS BOOTING! Amazed, do a rapid shutdown+restart.... only, back to the same ****.
PLEASE, someone, before I smash my skull through my workshop wall, tell me what the HELL is going on.
((And no, theres no HOPE of entering the bios at ANY stage.))

Hi PWNED, here is the link to you're Intel DG31PR board.
One of the most common reasons for a high end board not booting (yet fans run & leds light up) is the 12v 4pin ATX CPU power connector & main 24 pin power connector. Shown on pg. 51 of you're manual. These connectors must be secure, or system will not boot.
Check memory by removing one dimm if you are using two dimm's. With one dimm use only dimm slot channel A. (Nearest to CPU). Try booting. If no boot, swap dimm's & try boot again.
If you are using a PCI-E card instead of the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 onboard graphics subsystem, remove the PCI-E card. Unplug the power cord from the PC first.
Reset you're cmos/bios jumper to clear for 15 seconds, than move back jumper to default pins pg. 52. Try to enter you're bios? If you are not using a PCI-E card (which is preferred in order to receive display), still reset the bios. The Mfg. suggests to always clear the cmos/bios before assembly of board.
Go over these suggestions PWNED & get back to me if none of these have not helped.
