So i was just using my laptop normally today when it just suddenly did a BSOD. I turned it off or it turner itself off. I rebooted it, and i have a blank screen with 1 short beep, a pause, 6 short beeps, a pause, and another short beep. This is also the first time i used this site since 26 February 2014. I looked for the beep codes and existing questions and answers, but i couldnt find a beep code for more than 4 beeps, help! My Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad T420 Intel Core i5 vPro

Possible this is what you are hearing?
One short beep, pause, three short beeps, pause, three more short beeps, and one short beep.
Could indicate RAM or motherboard.

I would remove the RAM and clean it and reseat. If that still doesn't work then put 1 stick at a time back in, switching slots if necessary.

Yeah, that is what Im hearing. It worked again just by waiting, but again it randomly did a bsod again. THE Bsod Said something with memory so its possible it has to do with THE ram

Pretty common issue. If cleaning and reseating does not fix it then you will need to run Memtest X86 against each RAM stick to see if you get errors. Run it overnight to make sure. If you get errors you should just replace the stick.
