pappaslim is on a distinguished road

I have just opened my new Macbook Pro. I have purchased from a well know reseller site.

I have removed the notebook from its box and plugged in the power adaptor.

When I try to power the unit on I get no display and a number of load beeps. To stop this I need to hold the power button in for 5-10 seconds. I hear the hard drive stop spinning and the beeps stop.

The same happens with power out. I have check the power button and it shows the device is nearly fully charged.

Please help as new to mac!

QUOTE Thanks

several beeps on boot indicate a RAM problem. Remove the battery and reseat the RAM inside. You may have to unscrew a small plate to get to the levers. Did you have the reseller upgrade the RAM? Check that the RAM matches what belongs in the machine.

If your MBP is the new uni style then you won't be able to check the RAM solely without unscrewing the entire back plate. I would say bring it in to Apple and keep whatever care plan the computer still has on it.
