I did force shutdown by holding power button for few seconds. After that when I switched it on again, it just continuously beeps and the screen is blank. Last week also happened like this . But after sometime it switched on perfectly. And its not three beeps its continuous beeping. Pl. someone help!!

    This seems hardware issue. Bets bet is talking to AppleCare.

    Feel your pain buddy.

    Had a similar problem back in the 90's with a PowerBook.

    Was a hardware issue.

    Best luck.

    Just replace the RAM. However, you cannot replace the RAM. So take it to Apple. They also cannot replace the RAM but they can fix it. Probably.

    1 beep = no RAM installed
    2 beeps = incompatible RAM types
    3 beeps = no good banks
    4 beeps = no good boot images in the boot ROM (and/or bad sys config block)
    5 beeps = processor is not usable

    Not sure what continuous beeps means...
