Which motherboard and BIOS version?

(When it comes to beep codes, motherboard/BIOS manufacturers do not observe any standard).

Is the RAM you're using on ASUSTeK's Qualified Vendor List for that motherboard?

Don't know about the trailing "57009340" but the "OCZ3G1600LV6GK" portion is on the list.

Do you, or anyone you know, have any other compatible RAM and/or video card you could try?

Without knowing what BIOS and version there's no telling what the "one long, three short beeps" is trying to tell you.

One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps Video Problem

If its listed anywhere, it generally does not matter what bios version. It would be better if we knew though.

Hook up the very basics, a "bench test":

* Remove the motherboard from the case and place it on a piece of cardboard
* Install only the CPU with heatsink and fan (remember to use thermal paste and plug in the fan)
* Install only 1 stick of ram in dimm 1 (consult your motherboard manual for which slot is to be used)
* Hook up the Power Supply (there should be a 20 or 24pin connector, and a 4 or 8pin connector)
* Use onboard video, (if not available, use a video card)
* Use any momentary case switch, or have your case close enough to install it's case switch
* Make sure there is a case speaker connected, many modern motherboards have a onboard speaker
* Connect a ps2 mouse and keyboard along with the monitor
* Power the system on


DO NOT hook up the hard drive, CD/DVD, case fans, lights, or anything else not mentioned above.

If the system does not power on, replace the 1 stick of RAM with the other stick. Are you getting any kind of beep codes? Do you get any video? Can you get to the BIOS? (Consult motherboard manual on how to enter the BIOS for your motherboard) Do the fans remain on, but no video?
