Hi,

Three beeps on startup usually indicates bad RAM or bad RAM slots or even just a bad RAM connection. If you have upgraded the RAM with 3rd party RAM, it may be the cause of it. I would bring it to an Apple Authorized Service Provider to test the unit with known good RAM. For the brave at heart, I'd try reseating the RAM (Instructions under battery/battery cover usually).

3 x beeps means there is a problem with the memory, either it needs reseating, replacing or a problem with the slots on the logic board.

When I turn my MacBook air on a blank White screen


Leave the Macbook air turned on until the battery goes dead. Then Connect to power and start it up. That should solve the problem. You problem was caused by not letting an update install in full.

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen


3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s

Beeping before booting


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.
