  1. Best answer
    Check your motherboards manual, it will tell you what the 4 beeps indicate, if you don't have a manual then there should be one for your motherboard on Gigabytes website.

    I would reseat all connections
    Reseat RAM modules and graphics card. Also try with just one Module (if you have more than one).
    Take CMOS battery out for atleast 10 minutes.
  2. I would reseat the memory.. 4 long beeps is ram.
