Mac won't start up, stays on screen with apple logo?
Serial No: W874874AZ62
Hello, I got given my friend's old laptop but it doesn't get past the screen with the apple logo. I have tried doing the PRAM and starting the laptop up without the battery but still nothing. Have you got any ideas how I could get past this problem?
Also 2 other questions...
-I am hoping to upgrade the RAM on this laptop, What is the most amount of RAM it can hold and what type of RAM is needed?
-the OS X on the laptop is the original, my friend has a new version of OS X Snow Leopard(from 2011)- would it be a good idea to try and run snow leopard on it, would the laptop be able to cope with it?
Thanks for your help everyone!
