Hi,
Four long beeps indicates a RAM (memory) problem.
Take out the system memory, clean the brass pins and the RAM slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush then reseat the memory.
If it still won't boot up the RAM may need to be replaced.



Regards.

3 log beeps on power on


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):

(AWARD BIOS)
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

(AMI BIOS)
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.

    You really aren't giving much info, so here are some beep - codes, also make sure nothing came loose on the motherboard or other components ( do this ONLY if you know how ) Safety first.

    At POST I get 2 short beeps


    it depends on the bios chip maker Here's some other beep codes:

    for Award and Phoenix BIOS:

    1 short beep: Normal
    2 short beeps: CMOS error
    1 long and 1 short beep: DRAM error
    1 long and 2 short beeps: Video card error
    1 long and 3 short beeps: Keyboard error
    1 long and 9 short beeps: ROM error
    Long continuous beeps: DRAM not installed correctly
    Short continuous beeps: Bad power supply


    AMI BIOS:

    1 short beep: DRAM flash error
    2 short beeps: DRAM ECC check error
    3 short beeps: DRAM detect error
    5 short beeps: CPU error
    6 short beeps: Keyboard error
    8 short beeps: Video card error
    9 short beeps: ROM error
    1 long and 3 short beeps: Bad DRAM
    1 long and 8 short beeps: Video card error


    Invoking Beep Codes

    .

    If the computer is actually functioning and the computer beeps continuously, then there is a problem with a voltage on the power supply being incorrect or the CPU overheating. IMMEDIATELY go into the BIOS and check CPU temperature, fan speed and voltages

    **********************************************
    BIOS Beep Codes

    Annoying isn't it? You have built your computer you switch it on and then nothing happens except a few beeps from the PC speaker. Frustration sets in as you try to figure out what is wrong with it. If you didn't already know the computer has already told you the problem. It can't speak of course but it can direct you to the problem. Its all in the beeps. The BIOS can recognise when the problem occurs and sends a signal out to send a certain amount of beeps through the speaker. These beeps then tell you the location of the problem.

    Unfortunately not all the BIOS' use the same codes as each other. Two of the main BIOS manufactures AMI and Award (now Phoenix) have different codes for there errors.

    AMI BIOS

    # of Beeps Error Description
    1 Refresh Failure The memory refresh Circuitry is faulty
    2 Parity Error Parity error in the Base (1st 64K) of memory
    3 64K Base Memory Error Memory error in the base memory (1st 64K)
    4 Timer Not Operational Timer 1 is not functioning (also caused by error in base memory)
    5 Processor Error CPU error
    6 8042 Gate A20 Failure Unable to switch to protected mode
    7 Processor Exception Interrupt error The CPU on the CPU card generated an interrupt error
    8 Display Memory Read/Write Error Video adapter is missing, incorrectly seated or has faulty memory
    9 ROM checksum error The ROM checksum does not match that of the BIOS
    10 Coms Shutdown Register Read/Write The shutdown register for coms RAM has failed
    11 Cache Memory Bad The cache memory test has failed. Cache memory will be disabled. *** DO NOT enable it ***


    With the first 3 beep codes, its well worth re-seating the memory just to make sure that it's in correctly. 8 Beeps is probably the most common in my experience. Can be caused by a badly seated Graphics card. If you have re-seated it then check with another Graphics card in the board.

    Always check for loose components before sending the board back as this is the main cause of errors on the POST.



    Award BIOS

    Award states that they now only use one beep from there BIOS. This beep is one long beep and then two short beeps. This indicates a graphics card problem. Any other beeps should be treated as a RAM problem first and then the board sent in to be inspected.

    The reason that the Award BIOS only uses the beep code for display problems is that it tries to display the error on-screen if at all possible. If the BIOS cannot initiate the display adapter then this causes the BIOS to make the beep code for a display error, which must be corrected before any other errors can be determined. Memory Test fails and hard disk failures etc will all be displayed on screen

    IBM BIOS

    The IBM BIOS works with Short and Long beeps as well as the Award BIOS. However the IBM one does still have codes to work from.

    Beep Code Error
    1 Short Beep Normal POST, System booted OK
    2 Short Beeps POST Error - Code on Display
    No Beep Power supply or Motherboard error
    Continuous Beep Power supply or Motherboard error
    Repeating short beeps Power supply or Motherboard error
    1 short, 1 long beep System board error
    1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter error (MDA/CGA)
    1 long, 3 short beeps Display adapter error (EGA/VGA)
    3 long beeps 3270 keyboard card
    Phoenix BIOS
    The Phoenix BIOS works on a slightly more complicated manor than the others. It does display an error code for you and produce a series of beeps. This BIOS produces its beeps according to the hexadecimal code the error produces. The Phoenix BIOS has many different codes for its possible errors and so many different beep codes. Rather than list the entire section here, I have provided a link to the official PDF file containing the codes and how they are derived.

    Phoenix BIOS Post Codes

    System board errors should be looked at by a specialist, Again always try to re-seat components to ensure they are in correctly. If necessary take all components out except for the RAM CPU and graphics card, then try the system. Re-seating components is the number one fix for getting past the POST screen. One badly seated components can cause the entire system not to function. so pick out your bios and follow the steps above to diagnose .hope this helps
