So what fixed your issue?

My MacBook Pro boots up. Looks like it is working fine. But after a while, sometimes 5 minutes and sometimes 30 minutes, its screen turns black and I get a single beep every five seconds. I can manually power off the MacBook, and restart normally but the same thing happens after a while.


Replaced or reseated the RAM modules.
