IMac (Intel) :: 3 Beeps At Start And Still No Sign Of Life

Sep 8, 2014

I turned my iMac on (2008 model) but after 10 minutes it went black and beeped 3 times loudly, repeating at 5 second cycles.  Shut it down by pressing the ON button for 5 sec.  Restarted and all worked for a hour before repeating the same problem...screen and keyboard and touchpad all locked out....shut down with the ON button.  On restart it gave me the 3 beeps every 5 sec with an ALL BLACK hard disk whirring, either.  I don't know how to do cardiac massage on an iMac.  Is it dead?  Is it the processor?  Is it the video card?  Is it the hard disc?

MacBook Pro :: Freezes On Start Up And Beeps

Jun 2, 2012

I have a brand new Macbook Pro (Christmas 2011), and today it was installing updates. It stated that it needed to restart to complete the updates, so I confirmed it. It shut down fine, but then didn't start up again on it's own. I waited for about an hour before manually starting the computer by pressing the power button. It did the opening chime and then the logo screen came up, but then it started a series of beeps along with blinking battery light (it is fully charged). It froze on the logo screen and continued to beep for a half an hour before I forced it to shut down (control+command+power button).

I tried restarting it in safe mode (holding the shift button down during startup), but it only resulted in the computer freezing on the logo screen for about five minutes before shutting itself off (no beeping or light that time, though). I went through my instruction manual as well as online searches to see if maybe I could somehow restore the computer to factory settings. I can get it to get into the Disk Utility section (holding down the option button during startup), but I'm absolutely terrified of erasing something I shouldn't.

PowerPC :: Unable To Start G4 - No Beeps/HDD Spins

Feb 11, 2009

I have a Powerbook G4 17 that I have been working on. I recently replaced the screen and verified that it worked prior to buttoning it back up. When buttoning the powerbook back up, I nicked two wires with screws. One was part of the LCD wire that comes from the LCD itself. The second was the airport wire that is wrapped around the screen. I wrapped them back up with a cover and preceeded to get using my comp again. Once finally put back together, I could not get it to turn on.

IMac :: Install The New Chips, The Mac Won't Start. Period. No Beeps, No Nothing?

Jul 2, 2008

I recently got an 20' 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Imac. It came with 1 gig of Ram. I purchased 2 2Gig SODIMM chips from New Egg. The ram specs matches what the little manual says. ddr2, pc2-5300 667MHz. When I install the new chips, the mac won't start. Period. No beeps, no nothing. I can sort of hear it try to start, then quits.

When I put back the original ram chip. Works again.When I have the original ram chip AND 1 of the new chips (for a total of 3 gigs of RAM) it works.Swapped one new chip with the other (as long as the original is in) Works.Original Chip is on the right side, New is on the left. Swapped places. Works.The mac will start ONLY if the original is in place. I should be able to start it with the nes ones in but it won't. I know both works because I swapped them.Anybody have any ideas on what's going on? Is there a setting somewhere I need to change or something?

Intel Mac :: Won't Turn On And Continuously Beeps

May 12, 2012

i tried turning on my iMac an hour ago and it whirred up with a black screen while beeping continuously, each beep an equal distance apart. I tried counting the beeps a few times and they don't seem to stop (I counted up to about 30 before i decided to stop, they kept going!)

I've read a few forum posts, and other things related on the internet, but no-one has a problem with continuous beeping. I don't know how to open up my mac book and replace RAM, or anything of the sorts.

OS X :: Start Up And Shut Down Times For Snow Leopard?

Aug 28, 2009

I have a new 09' 20" iMac Core Duo 2.66 with Snow Leopard.

Shut Down: = 7 Seconds. Tried 4 times, same result.

Start Up: 42-44 seconds to Login Screen

Login To Desktop fully loaded: = 6 Seconds

I am not impressed by the Start up or Login. I believe I clocked Leopard at the exact same speeds.

Overall I am not noticing much difference in anything.

Intel Mac :: Plays Series Of Beeps Around Midnight - No Alarms Set

Apr 30, 2012

I recently bought a used 2009 iMac. I erased the disc and started fresh.If I do not shut the computer down every night, right around midnight, the computer plays 5 or 6 beeps (kind of a little song of beeps). It's always the same sound.I've poked around System Preferences and do not see any alarms set in there. I have also made sure that iCal does not have any alarms set up to play at midnight.

A little more info about the iMac. It pretty much has nothing on it. I added Microsoft Office and that is it. I bought it so I can move some of my music over and get myself under 25,000 songs on my main computer (so I can use iTunes Match). Other than Microsoft Office I have not added any other programs onto the computer.

Mac Pro :: Power Light Indicator Blinks 3 Times At Start Up?

Jan 16, 2009

I recently received a Power Mac G5 from work. They told me I could have it, but reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling the OS was on me. So, I took it home, and plugged it in to turn it on, and the white light on the front blinks 3 times and then stays steady... and then blinks 3 times again... and so on and so on.

The RAM that came with it was bad, so I put in 2, 1 GB PC3200 sticks in it. Isn't it a RAM problem?

PowerPC :: 190cs - Made Start Up Sound A Few Times But Never Starts Up

Jul 16, 2008

I got a Powerbook 190 from my grandfather. He didn't give me the cord to plug it in with. He gave me the cord that has the big box, that connects to the computer. It was missing the cord that goes from the box to the wall. I read that it said to ONLY use an apple cord.My step dad said "that's not how electricity works." and gave me a regular, random computer cord. I was unsure, but plugged him in anyway.

He worked perfectly for one night. No problem at all. Booted up right away. I played on him for a few hours. It was time to go to bed.

He hasn't woken up since. He's made the start up sound a few times, but never starts up. I've pushed the reset button on the back a thousand times. At least what I THINK is the reset button. They just say under the video out port, but I don't know what that looks like. What I'm pressing is a small, very flat, wide (but still very small) rectangle of a button. Nothing. I've held it down for 40 seconds, 4 or 5 times. I've taken the battery out, and then held the reset button. Nothing. I've tried everything I know to do, for about a month now.

I left him alone for a few weeks. I plugged him in today, and it made the start up sound, and then nothing.

Can I save him? How? Should I try an apple-specific computer cord? Do I need a new battery? If I did, wouldn't it start up with the battery out, but still plugged into the wall? Fried motherboard?

I even found a freaking airport card that'll work with it, and an external floppy disk for my new mac, so I can transfer files from one to the other. I was so excited about him. And my dreams were crushed.
