Upgrading 10.5 - 10.6 HELP!
 
i have tried installing mac osx snow leopard and it said 'not enough RAM' so i read the requirements of what's needed to install it, and it specifies atleast 1GB ram so i've looked on my Macbook and its says it only has 512MB i believe..
is there anything i can do?

Thanks

Yes...the answer is to upgrade your MacBook's ram to 1 gigabyte.:)

If you don't have a clue how to put it in...then maybe this isn't a project for you.;)

Actually it is very easy :)...you can go to:

iFixit: The free repair manual

...and they have instructions on how to do it. You can also search the internet...and probably find 50 or more "Do It Yourself" instructions & videos on how to do it.

To get the ram you need...try one of these guys:

OWC
Crucial

Hope this helps,

errr, ive found the one i need and my question is.. there are 2 slots, do i have to fill up both slots? or can i just put a 1GB RAM in? oh and if i put the 1gb ram in can i also put my 256MB RAM in the other one? :D
thanks

The maximum amount of memory for that machine is 2 GB. You need to buy 2 x 1GB modules and install them. That means removing both 256MB modules. See Nick's reply about ifixit and where to buy.

Don't mix modules, always use two of the same kind.
