If you are near an Apple Store with Genius bar, you could call
ahead to arrange an appointment date/time for someone to
look into the matter. And, if your computer has AppleCare plan
coverage in effect now, call AppleCare's main number (?) and
they will ask some questions to confirm coverage about the
product & so on; then someone should be able to help by phone.
This issue, and your second or other post about the iPod not
working when plugged into the computer, may be related. In
some instances, a beeping sound can have specific meanings
in the number of beeps. In some models of computer, if the
RAM is bad, that may cause some sort of beep intervals of a
certain count, and so on. So, to contact an Apple Store or if
none is within a driving distance, perhaps call a Specialist in
your area who sells Macs & has Authorized service, may help.
There could be a hardware problem behind both issues; the
beeping and the connection issue with the iPod.
Good luck & happy computing!
what does it mean when my macbook pro keeps making these strange beeping noises
it means something's not right.
can you elaborate, please ? does the beeping happen @ startup or all the time while the MBP is running ?
take a look @ this support article: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1547.
anything sound familiar ?
I realize that you had this problem a while ago, but I thought I'd post my suggestion in the event that others down the road come across this post (like me).
This link (http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1547) indicates what different beeps mean. If it is an issue of RAM it is easy enough to try to solve it on your own. If there is one beep every five seconds, shut off your computer by pressing and holding the power button until the beeping stops, take off the bottom and try to press the ram in all the way. When installing the second DIMM do not pull out the plastic tabs that holds the DIMMs in place or you may unintentionally uninstall the bottom DIMM. If everything is installed correctly, then you should be able to run your computer like normal.
