Computer starts up to grey screen and apple logo then shuts down.

The machine worked perfectly for years and now it is failing. That may be just Hardware wear. The owner should be grateful for such good luck.I would try to reinstall the old OS version and see if the problem disappears. But I doubt it. If the problem persists then the OS upgrade is not responsible for it. Maybe a cleaning of the vents will do. If heat is not evacuated, the fan has to work harder. With age it is no longer able to handle the load.

I got an imac free from work! but.. its running mac osx 10.4 i cant download anything at the moment! what shall i do?

You didn't mention what kind of MAC . . . Check the Apple->About This Mac . . . You can try going to the Apple Store, and for 20 or 30 you can purchase an upgrade/new OS disk. I don't believe that you can go to 10.6 or higher if your Apple's Processor is a PowerPC (PPC).
Good Luck

I have imac. and i want to change his operating

Yes it is very easy to do as you are running a Mac with Intel Processor. You have Mac OSx Leopard with updates 1,2, & 3. To upgrade to Mac OSx Snow Leopard you must buy the upgrade. Go here: On the top right click (Buy Now) You will have to pay $29 which is a bargain. Once you get the upgrade on CD simply follow the directions for the simple upgrade. I did the same thing when Snow Leopard came out. It is well worth the $29.
