After a short interval (10-15 mins) I hear random beps (about 3-4).
I do not notice any change to apps that are running.
I am wondering if these are some kind of a warning that I should be attending to?
Any one seen this behaviour?
Restart the mac - do the beeps occur on boot up?
Several beeps on start up or shutdown are normally signals that there is some hardware fault - typically associated with unseated or faulty RAM - with your mac.
Have you changed the RAM or had the back off the computer recently for any reason?
I had opened the back cover to replace the HDD with SSD.
All else is working fine.
Do I need to reopen and see if I have left any thing loose ?
Did any of the beeps happen before you opened the back cover????
No I had not noticed any beeps before replacing the HDD with SSD.
But, After replacing the SSD, I straight away installed Mountian Lion.
OK, then . . .
Pay real close attention to the number of Beeps, OK?
IMHO, a faulty install of ML would not cause beeps . . . it's usually hardware.
Make sure the RAM is seated really firmly, and that the back cover is on correctly.
The beeps sound somewhat (to-to-to to to to-to-to).
I reopened the back cover, removed the RAM and clicked it back in.
Made sure that the back cover is firmly placed back and screwed in.
But still hear the beeps. (-:
How about the original RAM? Have you put that back in yet?
That's the most relevant info I can find:
