3 beeps means a bad or lose RAM chip. If you recently dropped the machine you may have knocked it loose.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Thanks Machead3. Dropped my MB Pro and it produced the 3 beep code. Removed the back, removed both RAM cards and re-inserted/re-seated. Bingo, fired right back up.

I agree with Machead3. Here is iFixit's article on replacing MacBook Pro RAM:Article. This is for the early 2011 model, but it should be very similar for any non-retina MacBook Pro. If your Mac is not an early 2011 model, iFixit should have an article for any model.
