Hello, my name is Dan.
Most likely it is because your system's RAM has gone bad.
Can you tell me what iMac it is? The year it was made would be sufficient.
How many beeps between pauses?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
We bought it not even a year ago. It is one of those new big screen iMacs. I assume it was made in 2008 or 2009. There are three beeps then a pause and it wont' stop!
Expert:  Daniel replied 7 years ago.
That is indeed bad RAM. I strongly suggest taking it into the Apple store because they will fix it for free because it's not even a year old.
I also strongly recommend getting AppleCare, this covers for three years bumper-to-bumper.
Other than that there's no other fix.
