conor is on a distinguished road

Ever since I got my Mac Book I have been unable to successfully install a software update. I have tried a combo update from 10.5.4 to 10.5.7 and failed. Since then I have used discs to install 10.5.6. I have tried 5 times to install the latest update to 10.5.7 and failed. Every time it has stalled at some stage in the installation and after leaving it for hours I was forced to turn it off. Once the install completed but i was greeted by a blue screen when I rebooted.

I need to find a solution to this problem because I need to install a program which requires 10.5.7

Does anyone know what could be causing this?


QUOTE Thanks
