    Hey guys!

    So i recently bought myself a second hand MacBook from eBay, it seems to be working fine for the moment. However...

    Every so often when i turn it on, it beeps 4 times, then continues its regular boot-up sequence.
    Is it possible my MacBook is somehow indicating something is wrong?

    Some further research indicated 4 beeps means the following:

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

    But the system continues its boot-up process and i am assuming the beep info above is if the system doesnt boot at all and simply beeps.

    Any help/info would be appreciated.

    Im hoping it doesnt have to come to that,

    The system still beeps if i have the install disk inserted and boot from that, even if i boot from a windows partition.

    Heres what happens


    -->Power on --> 4 Beeps --> Normal boot process.
