    Hi everyone,

    My macbook pro displayed this screen today after displaying a similar screen yesterday. It now goes to a complete blue screen when starting up and sounded out 3 beeps.

    I've booked an appointment with the genius bar tomorrow, but I'm self employed (video editor) and I'm wondering if anyone has had an issue like this fixed and how long it takes?

    here's the image! http://imgur.com/sk6Mxcw

    Any advice/help/estimations are much appreciated!

    3 beeps usually indicates a RAM issue while blue screen usually indicates startup or software issue.

    Might try booting to safe mode (hold left shift key during startup) and see if that gets you anything.
