Sometimes when i turn on my iMac it makes this beeping sound but when I unplug the power and put it back in it work why does this happen?
Other then the startup bong sound, Mac's can make a series of beeps to indicate a power on self test (POST) failure. The pattern of the beeps indicates the type of failure.Sometimes when i turn on my iMac it makes this beeping sound but when I unplug the power and put it back in it work why does this happen?
Did you read gehrbox's reply? Next time it happens, count the beeps. They usually repeat after a few seconds. That'll tell you what the problem is. If it is RAM related, you might need to re-seat the memory.anybody still know why?
Apples RAM is subject to failure just as any other memory. It could just need to have its memory sticks reseated. If reseating the memory does not cure the problem you either have a bad stick of RAM (most likely) or your system board has a fault that is preventing it from correctly performing a POST.It not 3rd party Ram it is apples ram!
I will make a genius bar appointment
