I have had it with this motherboard, I have checked and rechecked all of the onboard jumper settings. All connectors are properly inserted. I have switched memory twice (DDR2/533MHz, i Gig. My memory modules and video card are inserted properly, yet, there is no video on my monitor. What is the problem with this supposedly good MB? HELP!

Jumper JPG1 allows the user to enable
the onboard VGA connector.
Make sure this jumper is between pin 1 and pin 2.
The jumper is at the bottom of the motherboard, just about in the middle of the bottom edge.
If this jumper is between pin 2 and pin 3 it disables the onboard video.
There is a 4-Pin Speaker connector that is not used by Gateway on the motherboard (right beside) the CMOS jumper settings (Pins).
The clear CMOS settings jumper block is right beside the speaker pins. You can use this jumper block to clear the CMOS RAM, which is powered by the onboard real-time clock button cell battery.
Pin 3 is indicated by the markings on the board.
Pins 1 and 2 covered = Normal Operation
Pins 2 and 3 covered = Clear CMOS enabled.
Uninstall the newly installed Graphics card and boot again. If it boots up normally, then the graphics card must be incompatible with your motherboard or might have some defect with it. Or if the system doesn't boot up even after the new graphics card is uninstalled, then you need to recheck the connectors and make sure everything is connected/inserted properly and fitted. The best way to check connection faulty is, plug-in one after another while you boot the system everytime... you plug in a connector. First connect the power switch and so on..
check the motherboard manual and see if it requires a jumper to enable the audio onboard ( if so get the jumper from your motherboard box and seat it on the correct jumpers in the correct position to enable onboard audio ( assuming its onboard audio that you are using ) If not then ensure your sound card is seated firmly and install the correct drivers ( for either the onboard audio or the dedicated sound card ) and then ensure that the speaker cables are connected to the correct connectors on the sound card ( whether onboard or not ) and make sure windows audio is not muted for any of the auxilary lines ie wave etc and if its realtek ensure that you have 2 speakers selected in the HD Control panel and not head phones.
the things youre describing that are not controlled by the same power connectors. the 1st set that works are powered i think by the main large rectangular power connector. the stuff that's not working require more power connections. the cpu fan has a small wire that connects to a small connector on the motherboard right near the cpu. the optical drive connects to one of the the 4 pin power connectors coming from the power supply, same with the hard drive- same power connector. the front usb light is going to connect to a specific tiny 2 pin connector on the mobo, it will be labeled with tiny white letters-- try to find or download the manual. godo luck!
Make sure the onboard sound is enabled in the BIOS settings.
Be sure the jumper plugs between pins 5 & 6 and 9 & 10 on the F_AUD connector on the board are installed (unless they have been removed to plug in a cable to audio connectors on the case). Without these the sound won't go to the output jack on the board.
Reinstall sound drivers. This will get you to Gigabyte's download page for this board. There are several versions so you'll need to pick yours from the list.
Download and install the sound driver to make sure you have the latest version. Then verify your sound settings in Windows to be sure you don't have anything muted.
Be sure your speakers are hooked up correctly (plugged in to the correct jack, proper power, etc.).
If nothing gets the sound working you may have a problem on the motherboard. Get a sound card and install it in one of the PCI slots to replace the onboard sound. These often give better sound quality than the onboard audio anyway.
