Black screen and 4 beeps.
Yesterday while playing Bioshock 2, I started to get BSOD and a reboot. The computer would run fine in windows but when I would go into the game it would play for while then dump. While trying to figure out what was going on, it BSOD and tried to reboot but all I am getting now is black screen and four peeps (post memory failure). I pulled the unit apart and found that any of the ram plugged into the C/D slots causes the error. If I leave 8 gig in A/B slots it boots fine. Does this sound like a MB failure to you? I've only had the laptop for month and a half.
