    Im about to get very very very upset! I was playing WoW when I heard a pop and then the iMac froze. I held in the power button to reset it and was greeted with



    BEEP.........BEEP........BEEP In a repeating 3 Tone intervals!


    Im BEYOND PISSED right now! I am assuming this this is Dead but any wisdom would help. Of course its a BTO also! I am very quickly losing faith is Apple, as every single product of theirs ive owned in the last 2 years has needed repair or replacement..

    3 beeps indicates a memory problem. Reseat the memory and try a reboot. Otherwise call Apple.

    gehrbox is right. Maybe you could nudge apple into giving some extra memory for this problem ;).

    Funny my 5 year old dell never had a problem yet my imac gave me headaches daily, got rid of that POS and now I use a new MBP, so far so good.

    Please, by all means do elaborate.

    I'm on my second iMac and have nothing but praise for them. Unless I decide to go for a Mac Pro the next time around I'm fairly sure I will get another iMac as well.

    Maybe the iMac wasn't the problem. ;)
