  1. no you dont need new ram you need a bios update , for that you need a 6th gen intel cpu ( that cpu is 7th gen) , like the i3 6100.

    just bring your motherboard to a store and let them do that for you.

  3. That motherboard has "BIOS FLASHBACK+ port".

    Instructions on its use are in motherboard manual. The MSI USB Flashback+ feature that you can use with a bare bones setup where the CPU, memory, and GPU do not need to be installed.

  5. You need a display, use your tv for instance.

    get an empty 8 gb usb or bigger.

    remove the cpu from your pc and the ram and graphics card.

    now go to another pc and put this on your usb : https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z170A-GAMING-M7#down-bios
    than download this version : 7976v1I

    than follow this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRyFMf0D9Lc

    after this you can add the cpu ram and graphics card and it should work.

  11. 55 means no ram installed indeed, so that means your ram isn't compatible. if you inserted it correctly.
