    Hey today, my mac froze and started making a beeping noise, I thought nothing of it so I turned it off then back on again, but the problem persists.
    I called up the apple store, the helper led me through a number of tests, He asked me to run a hardrive test, he said if it came back with no problems that I should reinstall OS Lion, and if it came back with a problem to contact him again.
    After the test my hardrive was fine, so I reinstalled Lion, but shortly after the problem happened again.
    Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    You have an issue with your RAM.

    - a ram module going bad
    - installation of incompatible ram
    - your ram may have become dislodged

    If you're under warranty, bring it to an Apple store.

    I think i found the probelm, because when i pushed in the bottom of the mac, it instantly froze and beeped, is this becuase the RAM is loose?

    Yep. Likely. The RAM is located at the center, bottom of the MacBook. You can remove the bottom plate and reseat the RAM.
