Beeping before booting

I have a MacBook. When I turn it on the monitor turns gray and it starts beeping loudly and it does not boot up but it continues beeping. It starts with two beeps and continues with three beeps every 2-3 seconds. There seems to be a CD stuck in it as well.

Probably the RAM. Take it out and put it back in to check. You will need some RAM to boot, so try each stick separately if you can. I'm guessing though that you'll have to get at least one other stick of RAM to check. You'll probably find that one is bad. It's probably covered for life, but that would be a good reason to upgrade it.

Macbook stuck on load up screen


When you say "load up screen", I assume you mean the Apple boot screen (it has the apple on a gray background).

You might try resetting the PRAM on the macbook.
You can do this by pressing and holding the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

So, turn the macbook completely off. Turn it on and immediately press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys until the computer reboots and chimes. Once it chimes, release the keys. Your system should boot normally.

My apple macbook won't start and continuously keeps on giving a beep sound.


the beep pre-boot is signaling a kernel panic. It could be bad ram or something else, it's hard to tell without hearing the beep (they signify different things)
1 beep = no RAM installed

2 beeps = incompatible RAM types

3 beeps = no good banks

4 beeps = no good boot images in the boot ROM (and/or bad sys config block)

5 beeps = processor is not usable

taken from http://www.welovemacs.com/whdoallthbme.html
So depending on the beep, it means different things. However in any case I'd suggest taking it to an Apple Authorized Repair Facility. Unless you feel comfortable with assessing the proper solution on your own
Good Luck.

When booting up my laptop it has a gray screen with the apple for a minute and then it turns to a circle with a slash through it


Boot from the CD/DVD that came with your Macbook. Launch 'Disk Utility' and perform 'Repair Disk' as well as 'Repair Disk Permissions' on your boot drive and hopefully that will fix the issue.

If that doesn't do it, try holding the Option key during startup to select the boot disk and select your Mac HD. If it boots in this manner there are rumors about some bad SuperDrives out there causing this boot issue. So you may want to boot it while holding "D" and run the Apple Hardware Test from the DVD/CD.

Won't boot up


If you hear NO beep code when system starts to boot , it is dead ( one beep then after a few seconds it will beep again before you see windows start up screen )

My computer crashed and now the monitor goes into power save mode


You said that you hear a series of beeps, if you hear this kind of sounds maybe there is a loose connection from the CPU. Try to remove the Memory and put it back again.
