I recently got a board from the Intel Retail Edge program DP55SB motherboard, the Compatibility chart on intel said an i3-560 would work without a Min Bios Version:
The computer does give video even after updating to the newest Bios.
The graphics card I am using is a Galaxy Nvidia GT 610
If I pull the pin to put the computer in bios recovery mode and put in a flash drive with KGIBX10J.86A (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20211&lang=eng Download Center) it will enable the monitor show the graphics card information for a moment than show a black screen and will sit there with a post code of E6 than 5A than 68 and stay on a 68, no further changes at all, the monitor still detects there is video but does not show anything. If i shut down the computer and put the jumper in any position or have back to bios on it will turn on than shut off after a few post codes.
The board has been RMAed once already and intel support refuses to help further. Next time I will buy AMD.
We would like to inform you this motherboard has been discontinued but here are our recommendations for this issue:
- Proceed to test the motherboard on a minimal configuration out of the chassis in order to narrow down the problem (motherboard, processor, video card, power supply)
- Test the system without memory looking for beep codes.
- Remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery# datetime http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery# datetime
-Include 1 memory stick and try to access the BIOS screen pressing the F2 key.
-Try using another video card to discard compatibility issue.
If you remember which was the previous BIOS version installed please let me know.
attempted Cmos reset already, nothing still no video
attempted minimal configuration test, no video
removed ram, i do get post beeps
only have 1 memory stick int it already, and tried 2 different ram sticks i have, no video
tried 3 different video cards, no ram
since i have never gotten video unable to know what bios the RMA board had.

Thanks for the information. I'm going to check the notes on the service ticket and notify the agent in charge about your situation so he/she can contact you back ASAP.
By the way, the memory you are using is totally compatible with this motherboard and processor combination.
