Trying to test boot a new motherboard/CPU. No Videocard only connecting via the onboard video Blackscreen only on monitor with either HDMI or VGA. No Beeps. I have the JPWR1 and JPWR2 Power Connectors attached to the Motherboard.

Error code on motherboard is 03 (Power on Northbridge Initialization). However once out of the 20 or so times I powered on the board the Error code was 55 (Early Memory Initialization). The 55 error code occurred when I either had 1 stick of ram in Dimm slot 2 or 2 sticks of Ram in Dimm slots 2 and 4 not sure which one. I could not get the 55 error code to repeat.

I tried various combos of 1 stick or Ram in dimm 2. 2 sticks of Ram in Dimm2+4 and 4 sticks of Ram in all 4 slots. Nothing makes any difference. Same error code 03 with the one time error code 55.

I bought all these items from Newegg. If I cannot figure out the problem can I return the MB/CPU to Newegg for replacement?

All should be be good, think I'd RMA as defective and try a different brand, Asus, the Rock or GB, I myself won't touch MSI for builds (for about 3 years now) and they have had a lot of problems in particular with this model
