Hello everyone,

First time here looking for some help.
I have a a320m motherboard with a ryzen 3 1200. I bought a new ryzen 7 3700x to upgrade. I?m aware I need to update the BIOS before installing the new cpu. I went on the asrock website for some information and followed steps promptly. My issue came up when updating to bios 5.3 from 3.2. (I had an older version than 3.2 so I had to update the BIOS to 3.2 to get to 5.3 like it said and it went smooth) It?s not reading the 5.3 file when I try installing it in the bios. I didn?t have this issue when I updated it from 3.1 to 3.2. I installed the amd driver prior to installing the new bios. I?m not sure what else to do at this point. Any help would be appreciated.

Umm, which motherboard? I found all these on AsRock site:
A320M Pro4-F, A320M/ac, A320M-DVS R4.0, A320M-HDVP, A320M-HDV R4.0, A320M-HD R4.0, and A320M-HD

I looked through all of them, including different revisions when present, and saw no mention of any BIOS version 5.3.

Aside from the usual "make sure you unzip it if it's an archive" I can't really
think what could be the issue. It may be worth trying to put some of the earlier
updates on the same flash drive, it could require one of them before going to
5.30. I know it looks like you should be able to go from 3.2 to 5.30 directly but
you never know.

I will say however that I wouldn't use a 3700x on an A320 board, while technically
it will work, it is an ultra budget board with very weak VRMs. In all likelihood
you will be throttled most of the time and running hot on the VRMs. The A320
chipset and boards designed for it were really meant to be used with low spec
Athlon and at most Ryzen 3 parts for budget office/home systems. Don't get me
wrong, for the money they are great boards but not ideal for higher power CPUs.

But that isn't the issue here, just a bit of advice. I have used a few A320 boards
with Ryzen 5s and found they tend to run uncomfortably hot (the VRMs not the CPU).

If you still can't update after including earlier updates on your flash drive I
would open a ticket with ASRock support, there could be an error on the site.

Good luck
