1long and 2 short is a video adapter failure, replace the video card and see if the problem goes away, unfortunately if the beeping continues with other video cards, then there a faul on the mainboard.
1 long and 2 short is very common and well known fault in both desktop and laptop computers.

Hello here is some beep codes:
Beep CodeDescriptions 1 short DRAM refresh failure 2 short Parity circuit failure 3 short Base 64K RAM failure 4 short System timer failure 5 short Process failure 6 short Keyboard controller Gate A20 error 7 short Virtual mode exception error 8 short Display memory Read/Write test failure 9 short ROM BIOS checksum failure 10 short CMOS shutdown Read/Write error 11 short Cache Memory error 1 long, 3 short Conventional/Extended memory failure 1 long, 8 short Display/Retrace test failed
My guess is you have a ram/memory module failure.
Try to renew the ram module.
The asus homepage is here:
Here you can download a manual.
Please unzip the file when downloaded.
Your mainboard is using following type of ram:
Dual Channel Memory Architecture
4 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 4GB
PC3200/PC2700/PC2100 non-ECC DDR SDRAM memory.
These module does not exist bigger than 1GB.

Tips for a great answer:
Whenever a recoverable error occurs during POST, the BIOS displays an error message
describing the problem (see Table 53). The BIOS also issues a beep code (one long
tone followed by two short tones) during POST if the video configuration fails (a faulty
video card or no card installed) or if an external ROM module does not properly
checksum to zero.
An external ROM module (for example, a video BIOS) can also issue audible errors,
usually consisting of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. For more
information on the beep codes issued, check the documentation for that external
There are several POST routines that issue a POST terminal error and shut down the
system if they fail. Before shutting down the system, the terminal-error handler issues
a beep code signifying the test point error, writes the error to I/O port 80h, attempts
to initialize the video and writes the error in the upper left corner of the screen (using
both monochrome and color adapters).
If POST completes normally, the BIOS issues one short beep before passing control to
the operating system.
