    You MacBook Pro will actually run a newer system up to 10.11 El Capitan and it should be fine with 4GB of memory. Is there some reason such as old software that requires you to run a much older system such as Leopard? If not it might be worthwhile to install the newer version.

    In terms of Firefox, I suspect the problem with that download is not that you have not got enough memory but that the online version is no longer backwards compatible with OSX Tiger.

    You could try resetting Pram which is done by booting the Mac and holding down cmd+opt+p+r though I have a feeling that is not the issue here.

SOURCE: Upgrading from MAC OS 10.4 to OS 10.5

Apple has a list of specs to run it. Looks like yours falls within it. Although some things will need other requirements like a webcam for photobooth or ichat. But you should be able to get by. Might be a bit slower than some Macs running it, but as long as you don't have 20 things going on at once, you should be fine. Go to an Apple store and try it out first though to make sure you like it.

SOURCE: 10.4 tiger stuck on install

Hi, Sorry to hear you are having problems,
YES, Yes there is a way to get out of that loop.

  1. Shut down your Mac by holding down the power on button for 5 seconds or so..
  2. Power on your Mac and VERY QUICKLY press down on the mouse button and hold it down until your CD ejects.
  3. Now, insert your Disk 1 and reboot the Mac on this installer disk and don't forget to choose option 2 disks only...
  4. Voila!

SOURCE: eMac freezes quickly and regularly after startup

A number of eMacs and iMacs were build with a shipment of faulty capacitors. Your symptoms are consistent with this problem
Apple had an extended free repair program to fix these failures within three years of purchase, but the program expired because it's been more than three years since the last one was sold.
Turn your eMac over, remove the bottom door, and look at the tops of the two can capacitors you can see through the door. If the lines on the bottom of the capacitors form a K instead of a +, they are likely to be from the bad batch. If there is any brown crud or ooze anywhere in those lines or elsewhere on the can, the capacitors are visibly failed.

> I think something may be wrong with my optical drive

I agree. It may just be the physical sensors -- it's trying to detect that the inserted media is "fully" inserted, and spits it out if it determines that there is a "jam" that is partially blocking the detection.

Or, it may be the laser not working, and not reading anything from the media, and deciding to "eject" what it thinks is "invalid" media.

Take it to a certified Apple technician, for professional trouble-shooting.

Depending on the amount of RAM that you have, you may need to add RAM. If you have less than 2GB, you should upgrade the RAM. The other issue could be memory in general since you're running both systems and obviously have a smaller drive than would be available if you were only running one. I would remove the partitions and use one boot drive to see if that makes any difference. Just back your files up first.
