For a week or two now, my Mac has been glitching and showing glitchy looking bars across the screen and forcing a restart. Occasionally, it will shut down completely after showing the glitchy bars and start to beep thrice. I have had to take out and replace the RAM multiple times now, but it seems like the slightest nudge or simply using the laptop will cause the three beeps issue to happen. 

 

Help please how I can I stop getting three beeps altogether?!

Geez if you've replaced the RAM so much and the problem still happens it may be something else like the clips or a heat issue:

Not to make light of it but you REALLY DO have a Bleeping Computer.


I've learned blood is not thicker than money.

LOL that's for sure! Thanks for the links mate. The way it looks it may actually be a temperature/fan issue. How likely is this? The computer is only about a year old?

Hello, three beeps are always related to RAM, you might have have a bad ram slot, if so, you'll have to have Apple or a 3rd party you can trust install a new ram slot that'll hopefully fix a problem. If I may, may you tell me the closest city your located to?

Ohh ok! I'll do that. I'm in Hampton, and I contacted a reliable computer repair shop to do this. Fingers crossed that it works. Thank you very much for your help!
