I had a Ryzen 5 1600. Used it normally without any problems. I bought a Ryzen 5 5600x and before installing, I updated the BIOS with the latest version [7B84v2H5(Beta version)]. I installed the processor, the computer turned on, normally, it recognized the new CPU, I installed Windows normally, but when I start using Windows to install my programs, I get the Windows error blue screen. I restarted, tried several times, but right at the beginning of using windows blue screen of error appears. If I leave the computer turned on in the BIOS or windows installation... it is normally, but when using Windows (and even Ubuntu), it's simply a system error. Does this driver already have a non-beta version? Well, I ruled out the error being the new processor, seeing temperatures and even staying in the BIOS or Windows installation screen for hours and nothing happens... only when I use it.
NOTE: I installed the latest Chipset drivers.

Go into BIOS and Disable fTPM if your not using win 11
And make sure you have enabled A-XMP
Also please list your actual Hardware it makes it easier for members to help>>Posting Guide<<

I made the changes you suggested. But the error still happens. The BSOD error is: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

NOTE: I've already run the full memory diagnostics and it didn't show any errors. I also tried with just one of the memory sticks. I also ran a "chkdsk /r" but also all OK on my SSD.

That error is usually caused by overheating, or problems in system memory. It can also be corruption in the Windows installation. Maybe your CPU cooler is not working right or was installed incorrectly. You have the cooler listed as "built in" what does that mean? That you used the stock cooler that came with the CPU? Was thermal paste used correctly? Was there a plastic protective film on either the cooler base or CPU that wasn't removed? Maybe you just need to wipe the drive and reinstall Windows from scratch. It could also be a driver problem with a piece of the hardware. If you have eliminated all these things, okay. I'm just throwing out ideas.

Exactly, I use what came in the CPU, stock cooler. I thought about it, but when I saw the temperatures, everything was normal within 42 to 50 degrees. I tried to install windows several times, even Ubuntu and nothing. Using "try ubuntu", I used the terminal and ran a stress test and everything went normally, the processor was stressed and still ok. But when trying to install something OS and use it... BSOD. I'm suspicious of this latest BIOS for my board, because it's BETA.

Do you have a Spare PSU you can try as uneven voltage can also be the cause of your problem the newer CPU and GPU have less tolerance for voltage fluctuations.

Unfortunately I don't have an extra PSU.

MSI support asked me to reset the CMOS, I did it by jump and battery. The error still happens.

after that, I decided to buy an A520M that was already ready for the Ryzen 5000. It should arrive tomorrow, I'll test it and come back here to say if it worked.

I wanted to take this opportunity and thank you for the support and ideas you all gave me.
