won't turn on and does a beeping soung instead

Hi there, I had some problem with my macbook pro a while back, in which the screen was getting blank/frozen and I had to force quit it, and when i tried to turn it back on, it started beeping and would not turn on...then I would wait some hours and it would finally turn on. It was acting like this for a while and I managed to fix it by repairing the disk in disk utility and it was working fine...

"3 successive tones, a 5-second pause, 3 successive tones is the RAM integrity error. As Bernd recommended reseat your memory or replace it.

Heres the Apple TN on boot up tones Tone Errors for reference"

"Hi Tania,

how many beeps do you hear? Or is it beeping constantly without an interruption? Sometimes this symptom is caused by the memory. Have a look if it is seated propperly.

Good luck"

Start up and hold down the on/off button until led will blink rapidly and mac will start up fine.
