  1. Error Code 21 on Intel board DP55KG is usually a faulty RAM slot, something the DP55KG seems to be well known for.

    Check if the board is still covered by warranty. If not, try using different RAM slots if there are any currently unused ones.

    I did a search and read a little about it in an Intel board. Code 21 is for initializing a chipset component. First boot with just one stick of ram to see if it is still there. If it isn't then boot with the other stick. One user solved it with a new Bios battery despite not having the low battery message. Some had bad ram slots. Most had to just RMA the board.
