just here to help
just for the record, Lion loves the ram, so if you can ,buy more, at least 2 gigs, maybe 4
--gotta keep that Lion happy. It's not super expensive, and it'll be worth it.
so-you can try some of the following, depending on how comfortable you are with
technology and stuff like that. Use a brush based dvd cleaner disk. Clean off the laser lens in the dvd drive with isopropanol (you'd have to remove the drive for that, but it goes in easily). reset the PMU or the SMC? (might be worth a try) and failing that
just replace the drive. It's an ATAPI/IDE drive ( as far as I remember), so basically any dvd burner that has that will work, yes even ones from an old PC. I think, maybe, $40
but your mileage may vary
