How to prove whether there is really a God there or not?

You are unable to exist.

You cannot prove something does not exist, only something that does exist.
If it does not exist you cannot measure it to prove that it does not
exist. Just because you cannot measure it does not mean it is not

There is no answer at this time.

It is not so much whether 'god' exists

- it is more whether he/she/it gives a toss

Personally I think it is unlikely that some vastly higher intelligence
that Homo Not-very-Sapient does /not/ exist

- but it does not appear particularly benign

By all means worship a semi sentient volcano, but include me out.

Search these terms and you will find a very complex and fascinating
philosophical/ theological discussion.

Fideism (start w/ Wikipedia)
Christian Apologetics, especially Presuppositional Apologetics
Thomistic Philosophy (as in St. Thomas Aquinas)
Ontological proof for the existence of God/ Teleological proof...

This short book is a very intelligible discussion of the presuppositional approach:

Proving God exists denies Faith and without Faith God does not exist.
This is a convenient argument developed many centuries ago that goes
along with "it's a mystery."

Although no one can prove the existence of God, you can construct a
series of questions that can make unbelief difficult:

1.  How can life, or any sort of organization, co-exists with the
second law of thermodynamics?  A mathematician in the 1970's concluded
the chances of random organization to evolve into life is no more than
1 in 10^365.

2.  What does your conscience tell you?

3.  If there is no God, the only logical conclusion, after 2,500 years
of philosophy, is nihilism or post-modernism, both of which have
proven highly undesireable...can you live with that? See 5.

4.  All people live by faith (trust).  We trust our friends, family,
employers (to some extent), neighbors and government (to some lesser
extent).  We trusted our parents and teachers to tell us the truth. 
We make daily decisions based on trust of the continuance of a good
economy.  Some of these are concrete, others are not.

5.  Why is it such a stretch to trust in the belief of God?  The world
may be screwed up, but it has always been so.  There has never been
idyllic peace for long anywhere.  Maybe it  is better to assume the
existence of God and look for a reason why humanity acts evilly,
against godly principles.  We are free not to believe and act as we
choose to.  Hence we express our own godhood in our free and evil
acts.  This is not God's fault, assuming God and free will exist.

I hope this helps.

God or no god shouldn't be a problem.

You have a brain of your own to understand what is right and what is
not, and act accordingly (that's why we are called homo-sapiens)

You wouldn't like anyone else telling you what to do and what not to do, would ya?
So believe in yourself and live with your own voice!

The god you are looking for might just be within you.

You might want to look up a bit about buddhism (if u are interested in
this kind of philosophy)
