27 IMAC Keeps beeping with blank Screen

Not even a week old!! Computer was asleep for about 2 days, woke it up the same way with a few taps on the keyboard and it just started to beep. Tried to turn it off but nothing. Nothing on the screen, just beeping. Pushed the power button and beeping. Unplugged it and waited 5 minutes and pushed power button and beeping with nothing on screen. ITS ONLY A WEEK OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its sunday and it hurts my stomach to think about the lengthy process this will be to get a new one or get it fixed. My wife says to call, but I tell her that if there even isn't anything on the screen then what can they do over the phone. Is it possible the memory went bad. What would cause this? Its plugged in a power strip.

27 Inch Imac
i7 with 8 gigs

and its broken!! Sad

Any thoughts???

If you count the number of beeps you hear your computer making and then go to this page it may help you diagnose your issue.

if it turns out to be a ram issue you could try reseating the ram and or testing the sticks one by one to work out which is causing your issue.

Failing that listen to your wife and give applecare a call
