Did you run diagnostics? Restart your system press the D key to enter.


Yes I did but no problems were found and the beeping is still on. Thank you for answering...

Hey there,

It sounds like the beeping is occurring due to an issue with the RAM. Here are some troubleshooting steps to try:

1. Reset the SMC:

2. If your device has 2 or more RAM chips installed, please try each installing RAM chip individually.

  • This will help you identify which RAM chip may potentially be an issue.

3. Clean the RAM slots with compressed air.

  • If, for whatever reason, there is dust and debris in the connectors, this will clean it out.

@kmmeadows fixed your URL link. Don't use anything in front or behind as you kill the link. I try to set the URL with a title vs the raw you have
