@Miles - we unfortunately wouldn't be able to help with this issue without seeing it in shop. you may want to take it somewhere or send it to us for a free diagnosis.

My Mac gave me a few notifications that the start up memory is full. The it locked up while I was trying to clear memory so I restarted it. It loaded an all white screen and won't do anything. What can I do?

@Noel - three beeps usually signifies a RAM issue. You may want to try different combinations of RAM in different slots. If the ram slots are dead, it would be a logic board issue, however.

Help! Mbp 13.3 Mid 2011 won't power up. Batt check on side is working indicates fully charged. Macsafe is good... Red to green when charging. Front led blinks once when power button is pressed. Upgraded to 250 ssd and 18gb ram... Worked super fast last 14 mos. no problem. Then one day made 3 beeps repeatedly. Won't shut off on normal shut off press so held power button down for reboot. Never powered up since. Tried "disconnect batt cable, and pressing down power button for 10 sec, connect macsafe cable while holding down pwer for additional 10 sec. Then power up normally - nothing. Any way to fix this? Apple says replace motherboard but priced at 2/3 of mbp. Loosing hope. Any help ou there? Thx in advance...

@Willy - memory slots are located on the logic board just under the bottom case. It should be very straightforward once you get the bottom case off.

I know this video makes the task seem difficult but in reality, it's even more difficult. If you haven't had some experience or some old junk to practice on, you better leave it to somebody who knows what they are doing. I tried this procedure with a glass that was already cracked. I just made it worse and still didn't succeed in getting the glass out.

@Ralph - Apple doesn't officially sell the keyboard by itself, so our video does not go that far. it is really just a lot of screws once you have the top case off to remove the keyboard.
