I have an Alienware Aurora R4 and tried to replace the AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series to an ASUS RX 580. This seems to be common with Alienware and their inaccurate stupid 5 beeps after reading sooooo many countless forums and reviews. So my problem begins after replacing the GPU to an RX 580, and I'm getting 5 beeps. I've read that it could be the CMOS battery but hey it has a brand new battery, I even swapped out to a GTX 1060, AMD RADEON HD 7000 series, and they booted fine except for a stupid RX 580. And here I thought that it was a faulty RX 580, but nope!!! It booted fine on a different computer perfectly. I've played with this all day, even swapped out different PSU's from 750w-1000w (Corsair, Antec, EVGA) to no avail. Someone tell me why an RX 580 won't work with this Alienware Aurora R4 with the latest 2014 BIOS?

ASUS RX 580 (5 beeps) boots, no post, no alienware logo, blank screen. (worked fine on other builds)
EVGA GTX 680 (no beeps) booted and worked flawlessly.
EVGA GTX 1060 (no beeps) booted and worked flawlessly.
AMD RADEON 6000 Series (no beeps) booted and worked flawlessly.
AMD RADEON 7000 Series (no beeps) booted and worked flawlessly.


Intel i7-3930k, Crucial 250gb SSD, 1tb Seagate HDD, Corsair HX750, 16gb (4x4) of DDR3 RAM
