I have the early 2011 model with Lion. Yesterday when I booted up, it started normally and as soon as I began to use it, it started beeping 3 times repeatedly, the light was also blinking, and the computer froze up. I think similar issue also happened a few months ago. I have upgraded the RAM to 8 gb. Could this be a RAM issue or something else? I restarted it and seems to be working fine now.
