hi there,

you will get more help on beep codes

by using link below:

Try removing the case and making sure there's no dust building up, blow it out just to be sure with an air hose or vacuum. Now if these beeps are: beep, beep, beeeeeeeeeeep. (2short;1long) then I believe it's your RAM connection or condition. Remove the cards and try switching them to other available slots, blow them off and clean the slots. Anything past that I'm clueless because this is as far as I got before mine started working again. Search this forum for the same issue because there's been plenty of feedback! Good luck! I know it's frustrating!
