Computer Type: Custom Build Desktop

GPU: AMD RX 5600XT Sapphire Pulse

CPU: AMD® Ryzen 5 1500x quad-core processor × 8

Motherboard: MSI B350 PC Mate

Operating System & Version: Windows 10/Ubuntu 20.04

Monitor: ASUS VP228

Description of Original Problem: I just installed the above graphics card into my PC. I previously had an NVIDIA card installed. Prior to uninstalling the NVIDIA card I uninstalled the driver. Then I installed the AMD card. Now I’m having an issue with the ASUS screen displaying an “Out of Range” error. It doesn’t even boot up to the BIOS screen allowing me to enter the BIOS set up, or review my boot list.

Now here’s a tricky part: I have a partitioned hard drive with Ubuntu 20.04 and Windows 10 on alternate partitions. 

If I re-apply my previous NVIDIA card, it boots up as normal.

Troubleshooting: I have uninstalled and re-installed my previous graphics card. 

Ultimately, I was able to download a driver for Windows and am now able to see Windows- but I still can't access my BIOS screen.  I'm still getting the error from my monitor saying "Out of Range".  I need to be able to access BIOS.
