Asus motherboards are usually American Megatrends' AMI BIOS. and if that's the case four beeps mean System Timer failure: Timer 1 on the mainboard does not work properly. This can mean that your motherboard has failed but before throwing it out there have been cases were the memory has failed on one dimm but not the other, so pull one dimm at a time and try to start it and see what happens

Hope this helps
