    Hello everyone,

    I'm having a little problem - more often than not, when I turn on my macbook pro I'm getting a single beep followed by nothing. It started happening all of a sudden a few days ago.

    Following the beep, I hold down the power button to turn it off again and start it up and then usually get nothing a couple of times - eventually after 2/3 goes at turning it on and off, it'll eventually start up as usual.

    I've read that 1 beep signals a problem with RAM? Is that right? The RAM I have in there what it came with so I can't imagine it's that.

    Any ideas on what the problem could be? Or how to go about fixing it?

    Thanks for any help :)

    It's not the one I would usually hear, so I don't think it's the apple start-up, it's sort of monotone, and nothing follows... if that helps?

    See that's my problem - It says it's the RAM, but my RAM hasn't been touched since I got it new, except yesterday when I made sure it was in properly.

    Any ideas how would I go about fixing such a thing?
