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!

Unless you are working with 1980's vintage motherboards, there are no jumpers on the motherboard for video. Most motherboards today, if they have onboard video and an expansion video slot, have a BIOS/CMOS option for which video you want to initialize first (onboard/PCI). A few may actually have an enable/disable capability, but few do anymore. It is all automatic.
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.
Try checking the jumpers on the motherboard. A lot of the SLI compatible boards have jumpers that need to be configured properly. You can find out the positions by checking the motherboard manual. Are you using an SLI capable video card or is the video onboard? I just ask because I had the same problem once while trying to install an SLI video card. I had no picture on the monitor and I couldn't figure it out for the longest. Finally I found the answer in the motherboard manual and it turned out to be a jumper that was set wrong. Hope this helps.
The choosing of video is normally done with the BIOS setup. Use whatever access key is needed to get into the BIOS and then find the page that sets video, and select onboard or PCI, or AGP, or whatever the choices are. No Jumper.
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.
