Hi everyone

 

I'm having a nightmare problem that I fear is nearly a dead, and very expensive laptop.

 

I started getting random freezes a few months back. That then escalated to the screen, and any audio currently being played, distorting, as if the screen looked broken, and freezing. Upon trying to switch back on I would get 3 beeps - I think they were long beeps. I looked on some forums and decided to see if new RAM would help. It didn't. Now, 9 out of 10 times, I can't switch on - I either get stuck between the apple logo screen and the login screen, or get the error in the image below. And 100% of the time it freezes, sometimes immediately, sometimes after an hour. It seems that now the beeping is (I think) different - 6 beeps, 3 short, 3 long - although I'm not sure that I've accurately documented how they've changed over time.

 

I use the laptop for work so I'm very worried, and it cost £1700 only 18 months ago...

 

Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance
