I hope I present my problem under the correct 'heading'.

Fatal Error
---------------------------------------------------------
The history:
The OS is Linux Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
For some weeks ago I invested in a new GPU-card: ASUS RADEON DUAL-RX560-4G

The Computer BIOS does not detect the card but when I get it all up (I have 2 monitors) so could Linux detect the new GPU-card.

Great! I think, then I noted that Linux does not use the ability of the Card, the detected GPU Speed and allocated memory was the same.

So, I get in to BIOS and search for some 'switch' or other 'thing' to do so the BIOS discover the new GPU-card.
Then, under 'Monitors' I find a [disable] 'thing' that for me says that this was a function that search the computer more 'exactly'. I [Enable] it and restart the computer.

Now I'm stuck...
Back to the screen above - over and over again...
After CTRL + ALT + DEL i see the BIOS 'log in screen' and I tap the [F2] alternate the [Del] buttons.
And I tried a lot of other 'tips' on internet, but nothing works.
I get no access to the computer BIOS

So please - is there a way to force me in to my computer BIOS?

Ok - no much help here...
But - as a Swedish proverb says: "Yourself is the best servant."
I find the solution.

  1.  Open the computer
  2.  Disconnect the power connector.
  3. Look for the spikes that say 'CLRTC' next to them, in my case quite far 'down' to the right. Over the connectors for SATA.
  4. Cross them, for 5-10 sec. I used a paper clip.
  5. Plug the power cable back in.
  6. Hold down the [Delete] keyboard key from startup and the BIOS should appear. Which it did for me 😀
