    How do you know for sure you need a Bios update ?

    According to the support site for your motherboard the oldest Bios you can use is 7A33v58 which was released on the 9th of March 2018.

    What exact Ram do you have ? If it's not compatible with the motherboard that could be the problem.

    Otherwise you could return the motherboard and buy another that will definitely work with the 2200G.

    Ok, get a Cpu as in post #3 above or swap the board for one with an B450 or X470 chipset, both will support the 2200G Cpu even with their original Bios.

    Or maybe find a repair shop that will flash the Bios on your MSI board for you, or borrow a first generation Ryzen Cpu from a friend (you will need a graphics card too).

    Do you get a display now ?

    The Ram should be in the red socket nearest to the Cpu and pushed down until both clips snap into place.

    What is the full ID of the ram if you look at the side of the stick ?
