    My mid-2010 iMac (bought Dec. '10) has been acting funny.

    It's random when it happens but either:

    1) the iMac will freeze and a gray screen fades downward and tells me I need to shut off my Mac and reboot

    2) most recently, the Mac will start making a loud shrieking sound then a series of 3 beeps happen consecutively, forcing me to hard reboot

    I've ran the OS X disc diagnostics (the short and long versions) multiple times but it reports back nothing. I want to take into the Apple store, but I'm afraid they won't be able to reproduce the problem(s), thus can't do anything for me.

    What to do?

    Pffff! Doesn't sound good, whatever it is.

    Call the Apple Store before taking it in. See what they say.
