    Tonight I was sleeping, and my iMac started making some beeps. I took the plug and back to sleep.

    Today when I woke up, I tried to call and my imac continued with the beeps, with black screen: 1 beep every 5 seconds.

    On apple says that the memory is not being detected. But I never open the ram slot.

    I tried to do this after the problem:
    - change the ram to other slot
    - boot up with only one ram each time, in different slots
    - smc reset
    - clean ram slot with a brush

    But nothing.

    What can I do?

    It's an iMac 5k 2014

    I assume you had token your iMac for repairing.

    Call Apple and schedule a repair.

    If you tried changing and swapping the ram, there's not much else you can do.
