1 long and 3 short indicates a bad video card and/or video ram issue. Try reseating the card or moving it to a different pcie slot.

If you can, try the card in a different pc and see if it works before you pop for a new card.

That should do the trick. Make sure you get low profile ram so you can install an aftermarket cpu cooler.
