    There is no place to download Leopard for free.


    The only way to get it is to purchase the Leopard install DVD. Apple no longer sells them. They are now going for between $159 and $195.


    What ever you do don't get the gray DVD!


    They are hardware specific and if you don't have the exact hardware they were issued with they will either not install at all or they do install will cause you a lot of problems later.

    Sorry, that's not correct. What you can do is purchase a legit retail copy on Amazon.com, eBay.com, or Google searching for it.

    Anyone know the issue about the ram?

  • Allan Eckert Level 9 (50,684 points)

    Problem with RAM could be


    Bad RAM cards


    Incapatable RAM cards


    Improperly seated RAM cards


    Bad RAM slots


    The first thing I would try is to move the RAM cards that work to the other slots and put the other cards is the other slots. Then report back the results.
