Hello,

I installed an AMD Radeon RX 5600xt onto my older pc and I cant get into BIOS after that. It seems to freeze up. I will post a picture and any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
Yeah it's much better.
This is the support page for your motherboard:
https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/990fxa-gd65
You can download newer BIOS version from there, but you need to do it one by one preferably and not straight to the latest.
I believe that you have the first one (19.0) because the second has a fix for cpu temp reported incorrectly and your cpu temp in speccy is only 13C which is very very low and unless LN2 is used, should always be very close to the motherboard's temp in idle.

In the top of the bios download is also a link for youtube on how to update your bios.

Ok, most of this wall of text is not needed. Next time you need to post your specs, use hwmonitor or speccy. Everything beside the PSU will be listed there. For your psu you can open the case and take a photo of the sticker, find the box that came into, etc...

The model of your motherboard can not be seen clearly as that
System Manufacturer: MSI
System Model: MS-7640
shows 5 different results of motherboards.

Please download speccy and use that to post your specs. Take a screenshot and upload it to imgur or similar site, then post the link here.

Looks like I may have use old graphics card because I have go into BIOS with a usb stick you update it.

UPDATE: I updated to 19.9, but cant update to the K2-K5. Speccy, speedfan, and hwumonitor all are reading at 200 degree for my cpu now, but the processor doesn't seem to be that hot.

UPDATE 2: I got all the updates for BIOS installed finally and everything seems to be working again! Thanks so much
