So I have an earlier model Macbook (1,1) running OS X 10.5. I have read through many forums which detail motherboard/bios beeps that sound at startup and how to diagnose them, however I have yet to find information on my problem.

I can't seem to find a correlation to the beeps, but they are NOT occurring at startup, rather they are happening during regular operation (searching web, typing papers, @ idle and playing music, etc).

I'm certain the beeps are resonating from the main speakers (as opposed to motherboard speakers) because I can mute the beeps by muting the sound.

They come in a series of 8 beeps, which are "paired" in 4 sets. That is, the beeps occur like this: beep-beep, beep-beep, beep-beep, beep-beep. Again, their frequency is not specific, nor is the correlation of when they present apparent.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

jtb

G'day and welcome to the forums.

See if these tips help:-


Macbook Pro 2011 runs perfectly but beeps 4 times every 5 minutes or so...

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
