You should just need to insert your OSX disk maybe snow leopard, then install bootcamp drivers from it also run apple software update, from the start menu or programs. install the latest free updates and you should be good to go.
Try downloading the driver from the below link. With Snow Leopard, if a printer is plugged in and Snow Leopard doesn't already have the driver, it's supposed to download it via Software Update; however, this sometimes does not work well.
Try this instead of using your Leopard Disc.
Immediately after the "bong" press and hold down "Command + S".
Wait for blinking cursor and then type fsck -y (exactly like that).
If you receive an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.
If you receive a "Disk has been modified" then repeat the fsck -y command until you get an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.
This set of commands entered in "Single User Mode" will repair your disk. If this does not work remove the hard drive, plug it into another Mac and transfer your data to a different computer. Then install a new hard drive and reinstall Mac OS X.
The software you are running may not be compatable with leopard. Some programs that are older will only recognise the OSX10 Tiger operating system. I would uninstall the program and find a similar one that is compatable with Leopard.
Hey, I'm not mac whiz, but the best way to remove the software from the computer is to type in the name of the program in the finder search bar, and physically drag it into the trash and empty it. I called mac support about it, and now they are trying to be better with the uninstall aspect of their new programs, but there are so many more programs for tune up that could be compatible with leopard on the main website.
Also every once in a while, you should zero out your free space (which is similar to defragment) by going to the finder menu next to the apple on the top left part of the screen, selecting the services submenu and then disk utility. It dosent matter which one you chose under disk utility. When that window opens up, you click on your mac hd icon on the left and then choose erase from the options on the menu. (THIS WILL NOT ERASE YOUR EXISTING INFO) Select the top option (Zero Out Deleted Files) and this will place zeros which will take the fragments of files left on your mac off. I hope this was helpful and good luck!
