    Ok so Friday night I was on my computer on hulu watching some show. All of a sudden the screen goes black and nothing happens. I turn turning it back on it makes like a beep noise and doesn't start up. After about 3 try's it boots up and everything is ok. So I go back to hulu and I'm watching a show and then it crashes again. Try the same process works but I give up and just shut my computer and say Ill take it to the apple store in the morning. Well It was fine all day saturday until about 11PM. I try same process and it works eventually. I've made sure that the battery is ok by doing the utilities then power battery condition was good please help?

    Take a look at this article to figure out what the beep means:

    Once you've determined what the problem might be, come back and post and we'll see what the problem is. But right now, it seems like it could be the RAM. Did you upgrade your RAM?

    Sounds like your Mac needs repair… or at the very least, the RAM needs to be re-seated. Is your Mac under warranty?
