I just bought a XFX RX 5500 XT 8GB Thicc II. But I can´t get it to work.

PSU's 8 pin is well connected and the card is sitting fully in the PCI-E slot.

When I turn on the computer, the fans spin and a blue led lights up (it means that the 8 pin connector is connected correctly). Then the computer posts, but it doesn't get into WIndows, It's only a black screen.

My actual setup is:

FX 6300
MSI 760GM - P23
Corsair Vengeance 8GB
Nvidia GTX 750
EVGA 600W Bronze

I read somewhere that the GPU's newer UEFI could have conflict with the older motherboard's BIOS. Or maybe the card is damaged?

PD: System works fine with my current card

Thanks for the help.

Yeah AMD have dropped support for legacy bios. Nvidia are more forgiving though and do run on older legacy motherboards. A good chance a 1660 Super or Ti would work.
I see. I tried updating the motherboard's BIOS but still not luck. Do you have any other suggestions I can try? Because the card seems to be working with older CPUs than mine. Or, is upgrading my platform the only way out?
