Z590 D & Radeon RX550 - no bios entry
« on: July 25, 2023, 11:26:27 pm »
After installing the RX550 card, I cannot enter the bios or start the boot option. The BIOS signals four beeps, then the operating system boots normally. The type of output (DP, HDMI, DVI) does not matter. How to solve this problem?

Greetings,
4 beeps typically indicates a memory error.  Are you using QVL ram?  Are you over clocking?  How many sticks of RAM are you using? Do you have the Fast Boot option enabled?  Its not needed and can often lead to BIOS access issues.  If you are using a wireless keyboard, this too can cause a problem.  Try a PS/2 or USB keyboard.  It sounds like you need to solve the error condition first.

Thank you for answers. I don't use fast boot or overcloking. The two memory modules work fine at conservative settings but they aren't QVL. The problem occures at any keyboard. The system works fine and stable after boot. The problem doesn't occure when internal prcessor graphic unit is used.

That board supports UEFI and you might have to enabled the CSM. The RX550 isn't a UEfI card. I have run into that problem on some of the new boards with older cards.

CSM Support
Enables or disables UEFI CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to support a legacy PC boot process.
Disabled Disables UEFI CSM and supports UEFI BIOS boot process only. (Default)
Enabled Enables UEFI CSM.

Excellent point.  Non UEFI compliant cards might have boot issues.

Why do you say the RX550 is not UEFI compatible?

Greetings,
I don't know if it is or isn't.  Older cards are sometimes non compliant and require CSM for boot.  Some older cards also had BIOS updates that improved compatibility or performance.

Its still not clear why your system is beeping 4 times at boot.   

I don't follow AMD cards any longer.  I started using nVidia based cards and today (EVGA) exclusively about 15 years.  AMD cards are great, but there were almost always some kind of driver issue, etc and I got tired of both AMD CPU's and ATi now (AMD) based video cards.

I chased the whole performance, AMD overclocking thing, priding myself on saving money and having a overclocked system with a slower CPU that performed as well or better in some cases than an higher rated intel based system.  As time passed, I stopped having the time on weekends to search and test for the right memory settings, FSB, multiplier, etc so my system would run fast, but more importantly stable.  Today, stability is the most important thing for me.  For people that have the time, AMD based systems are great.  Ryzen is a good platform.  I just prefer intel, the same way i prefer windows over MAC.

Before the new 1200 CPU socket. You could put almost any card you want onto a board and it would boot. Yes the RX-500 series is kinda UEFI, but not true UEFI. Because if it was a true UEFI card you wouldn't be having a problem.

I have build a few 10th, 11th, 12th, & 13th gen computers. On the 10th gen is the first time I ran into a problem booting from a RX-580 8gb card. I did have a true UEFI card and it booted fine. That is then I did some research and found that when I change the CSM to enabled then it booted fine.

Your computer will still boot UEFI, but now it boots with none UEFI components. That when you enabled CSM.

No problem with csm option enabled. Thank you.
