The exact fault code indicates RAM or a problem accessing the RAM. Check that you are using recommended/Approved RAM as ASUS and ASROCK (the budget arm of ASUS) are notoriously fussy with RAM. If it all checks out then your northbridge could be dead and it will probably be scrap.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Gigabyte doesn't list 3 long beeps as an error code, so I'm not sure if you're actually getting 3 short beeps or maybe 1 long and 2 short or... But, for reference, Gigabyte's error code list is as follows (depending on whether you have an AWARD BIOS or an AMI):
1 short beep: System normal
2 short beep: CMOS Error
1 long beep and 1 short beep: Memory error
1 long beep and 2 short beep: Graphic card error
1 long beep and 3 short beep: AGP error
1 long beep and 9 short beep: Memory Error
Continuous long beep: Memory not correctly installed
Continuous short beep: Power supply unit failed
1 short beep: Memory Error
2 short beep: Memory parity check error.
3 short beep: Basic memory 64K address check error
4 short beep: Real Time Clock malfunction .
5 short beep: CPU error
6 short beep: Keyboard error
7 short beep: CPU interruption error
8 short beep: Graphic card error
9 short beep: Memory error
10 short beep: CMOS error
11 short beep: CPU cache memory malfunction
It might not be a lot of help, but it's somewhere to start... and at least this way you'll know what to be listening for.
Did you check your monitor with other system or individually. If it
works fine in these conditions then the issue belongs to your pc. First
of all, you have to confirm that is it the problem of VGA itself or the
motherboard. For this, you have to see that does system beep when you
start it because system with beeps having the error and the beep sound
with continuous or 2-3 beeps relate with different issues. I am going to
write down the beep conditions.
1 short beep
Normal POST - system is ok
2 short beeps
POST Error - error code shown on
Power supply or system board problem
Power supply, system board, or
Repeating short beeps
Power supply or system board problem
1 long, 1 short beep
System board problem
1 long, 2 short beeps
Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps
Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA)
3 long beeps
3270 keyboard card
Below are the AMI BIOS Beep codes that can occur. However, because of the wide variety of different computer manufacturers with this BIOS, the beep codes may vary.
Beep Code Descriptions Document 1 short DRAM refresh failure CH000996 2 short Parity circuit failure CH000607 3 short Base 64K RAM failure CH000996 4 short System timer failure CH000607 5 short Process failure CH000607 6 short Keyboard controller Gate A20 error CH000383 7 short Virtual mode exception error CH000607 8 short Display memory Read/Write test failure CH000607 9 short ROM BIOS checksum failure CH000607 10 short CMOS shutdown Read/Write error CH000239 11 short Cache Memory error CH000607 1 long, 3 short Conventional/Extended memory failure CH000996 1 long, 8 short Display/Retrace test failed CH000607
I still did not find beep code that match your problem..
Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too. 1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem. 2. 1beep - board is working fine. 3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing. 4. 1short beep - system boots normally 5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error. 6. 1long 1short beep - dram error 7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected 8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error. 9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error 10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected 11. Short beep - power supply error 12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.
The beep codes below may help you identify the possible computer problems. However, they are only for reference purposes. The situations might differ from case to case. gAMI BIOS Beep Codes *Computer gives 1 short beep when system boots successfully. *Except for beep code 8, these codes are always fatal. 1 beep Refresh failure 2 beeps Parity error 3 beeps Base 64K memory failure 4 beeps Timer not operational 5 beeps Processor error 6 beeps 8042 - gate A20 failure 7 beeps Processor exception interrupt error 8 beeps Display memory read/write failure 9 beeps ROM checksum error 10 beeps CMOS shutdown register read/write error 11 beeps Cache memory bad g AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error
