I have a MBA RevB that seems to have died. Switching it on I get a grey screen and 3 bleeps on a loop.

Surfing the net I understand this is due to faulty RAM. Can anyone confirm this or had similar happen to theirs?

Guess I'll be calling the Apple Store tomorrow.

I am assuming that you don't see the Apple logo. If that is the case, the machine is failing POST (Power-on Self Test). In other words, it is a hardware issue - possibly RAM like you said. Did you put third-party RAM yourself after you bought the machine?

Let us know how your visit to Apple Store went. Interested in knowing the cause of the problem.

Its a MacBook Air, Ram isn't upgradeable, soldered directly to the motherboard. Going to take it to my local Apple Store tomorrow, see what they can do for me.

Sorry, it escaped my mind for a moment that I was dealing with MBA. As you can see I also have MBA. Good luck with ur visit to Apple.
