If you currently have 10.5.8 on your machine this is the highest update that you can have if you have system 10.5. To upgrade to 10.6.1 you will have to buy 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and upgrade 10.5.8 to 10.6 then you will be able to run system upgrade to 10.6.8.

SOURCE: The dreaded question mark???

It sounds as if your hard drive is damaged and is not mounting. As you are running OS 9 I suggest using Norton Systemworks and run it's disc repair facility Disc Doctor. This will make repairs to the hard drive to allow it to mount. (Unless the disc is too badly damaged). If this is the case you will need to replace the hard drive and re-install all your system and applications. If you haven't backed up your info, the damaged disc can be scanned and your files saved by a computer repair shop.

My Facebook PAGES will not work properly? Everything else does on facebook? Im on an old Imac, no updates are outstanding?


Hi Danielle

No Updates outstanding does not mean that it's up to date.
It means there are no more Updates to that particular OSX version. Eg osx10.5.8 You can Often move up to the next OSX 10.6 or osx 10.7 or OSX10.9 Maverics...which is free.

The new OSX will install not only a now OS but New Browser and many other enhancements that you are currently going without

You do have to do a full backup (Use Carbon Copy Cloner - for Bootable clone) to another clean external hard drive. Then you use your new Downloaded mavericks OSX10.9.DMG file to install a clean updated OS.
Get a free copy of MacTracker to look up your Mac model and determine if it can go as far as Maverics & Memory required.
But even if you can only go to the Next version up then you are still in front. I keep a copy of all versions but I'm not sure how or where you could get them. They are large files.

If all else fails... find someone in your area. (I'm in OZ)

Is there any free updates for my mac 10.5


Apple stopped supporting OS X 10.5. Upgrades are only $20 to 10.7.

If your Mac has 10.5, Lion, 10.7, is probably as high as you can upgrade. I would check either eBay or Amazon, as I've seen Lion disk sets selling for less than $5, then $4.95 shipping (or less on eBay).

All the best to you,

Download mac osx 10.5.


I would try updating with one of the combo packs, like 10.5.6

http://mac-os-x-10-5-6.en.softonic.com/mac

Here's is Apple's main page for that version:

http://www.apple.com/support/leopard/

Most of Apple's downloads are at:

http://support.apple.com/downloads/

Hope those help.
All the best to you,

Hello i want to use a argox ribbon printer os 214 plus with my mac book pro and osx lion is this possible ? so yes i like to know how Ron


To be able to do that you need to use a cups driver.
Try www.cups.org
try a driver for datamax or for Zebra if you have the pplz option
Else you'll have to write one.

I have the 8 disc set (mac version) purchased in the year 2000 working with OSX 9. Now I have a new mac with snow leopard version OSX 10. I would like to use the disc's with the new computer, what do I do?


Unfortunately the software will not work with OSX. OS9 (also refered to as classic os) had some compatibility with macs up to 2005 when Apple changed the processors in macs to Intel. Since then all OS9 software no longer works.
There is a small chance you may be able to browse/search the CD's folders for images as the photo objects may be in jpg/gif/png format. Try opening finder, select the CD. and search with the text box in the upper right corner in Finder.

Can't install mac osx 10.5.7 combo update on 10.5.2


The 10.5.7 update sometimes does several automatic restarts - depending on the mac and the previously installed OS version.
In my opinion the 10.5.7 update has been the strangest I have done.
Try this.
Hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. The MacBook should now be off - but it may restart automatically while flashing the sleep light at you - and make a long beep noise. Don't worry if that happens just let it do whatever it does. Watch the screen and follow any prompts that come up.
If the MacBook did not turn itself back on, hold the power button down again for about 10 seconds. What happens now?
Don't press any other buttons unless the computer tells you to.
If however, you end up with another 3 hour wait then something is definitely wrong and you need to take it in to a specialist.
