Question PC won't boot after enabling XMP

Jan 3, 2020
My pc doesn't boot after enabling XMP

Motherboard: MSI A320M PRO-E
CPU: R5 3600
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB 3000MHZ

I upgraded my cpu from R3 2200G to R5 3600 with a bios update today and I was able to use XMP with my old cpu without any problems. But after the bios update and the new cpu,İ whenever I turn on the A-XMP setting (3000mhz) my pc doesn't boot and I have to remove the CMOS to reset. I'm forced to run at 2133MHZ right now which loses me a lot of performance from my new cpu. :(

Edit: I've realised that the person I gave the pc to install the new cpu updated my pro-e mobo with vd/s bios update... I'm going to try installing the pro-e version, I'll update you when I install it.
Edit 2: nvm I'm pretty sure that E7A36AMS.H4M is pro-e's version. I still can't enable the XMP
