No beeps, No video but fans and lights come on...

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 have the same problem. Securing parts installation/connection did not help. If one of these parts is defective, is there a way to find which one is?

    I have the same problem. If I removed the memory DIMMs the board beeps 3 times (no memory POST error).

    It seems an incompatibility issue with q9300 ???

    I opened a case in Intel. Let's see what's the outcome.

    i have the same problem, and i don't have a non-45nm processor to install (for bios upgrade).  i sent mine back hoping they will send me one with an updated bios...o well. how can they sell a board claiming full compatibility with 45nm, meanwhile it won't run any of them out of the box??!! thats just shady.

    With this no display issue, i have another problem as my motherboard has no jumber available for BIOS. ( no pins soldered for jumber settings ). Is this a production issue ?

    I'm having the same problem. Now I've tried removing both DIMM's and still no beeps. All lights, fans, an green LED on mobo are on. But absolutely nothing coming through the video. No idea what it could be.... possibly the power supply?? I'm at a complete lost as to why this is happening.... Mobo is BRAND new, just bought it today.

Its the DG31PR bios!
Put a non 45nm CPU on it, update the bios to the latest one , put back your 45nm processor and all should work just fine....this board is awesome.

    Its the DG31PR bios! Remove your 45nm processor, plug another compatible CPU (non 45nm, like a core2duo) update the bios to the latest and put back your 45nm CPU...all should run just fine

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.

Have same problem, dont have a non 45nm cpu to put in to flas bios, What do i do???

Posted on Jul 09, 2008

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.

The green LED light on the board is lighted. When I push on/off button the CPU fan moves for 1/2 a second .I tried a different power supply, but that did not work. I replaced the CPU fan, but that did not...

Hello here is the homepage:

Any abnormal beeps at startup ???

The problem could be a ram module failing, or the graphic card if installed on the mainboard.
Or a short circuit somewhere.

Look also here:

Try starting with only 1 stick of Ram, the monitor and the keyboard connected, no other USBs to be connected.

Look also for bad caps on the mainboard:


If they look like this, the mainboard is dead.
It does not pay, to let them be changed.

Good luck

Intel dg31pr motherboard create some problems so that display is not available

The first step is to try video with a different video card.
If this does not work remove the ram and try to power on the motherboard. If the machine gives a series of long beeps when the ram is not installed, it is a good thing. This determines if the motherboard is posting.

If the beep code occurs, try using different ram, preferably that is known to be good.

If the beep code does not occur then the motherboard itself is bad, and short of using a multimeter to determine what component on the mobo is actually bad, a replacement would be in order.

No beeps, No video but fans and lights come on...

Do you have a graphics card installed in the AGP or PCIE slot on *********** board?
If so take that out and test to see if the computer beeps. If it does it could be your graphics card.
