4 short beeps generally indicates the CMOS RAM test failure. http://www.nthelp.com/beepcode.htm

Have you added more RAM to the computer? If not that possibly either you RAM cards have become faulty or have come loose.

You computer may have multiple RAM cards installed. If one of them is failing, you can simply try removing one and then try to boot. This just might work.

Good Luck!
