Just in case anyone still looks here for reference, I can confirm updated to 10.6.8 with delta update. Lost sound so re-ran Kakewalk pkg and everything now working fine.

Updated my D420 yesterday to 10.6.6 using the resources at:


Everything important is working including sleep/wake, (sd card still not sorted). Mac App Store works a treat.

I recommend any 4x0 or 6x0 owners have a look at this site. These guys are dedicated to getting as many of the latitude series fully working as possible building on the great work done by Leppy.

well, updated to 10.6.5 and no sound, we need to get ALC driver for 10.6.5


Updated mine via Software update and went as expected, no sound after reboot. Reinstalled AppleHDA.kext from 10.6.3 using Kext Helper and sound is back again. Everything else works great.

In Topic: Apple Care Sucks

14 July 2010 - 06:46 PM

I bought a 24in i Mac in July 2008 and took out Applecare.

After 12 months the hard drive failed and was replaced under Applecare. In the subsequent 12 months the graphics card failed 3 times. It was replaced twice under Applecare. The third time I told the AC rep that I had lost confidence in the machine. After referring to a superior the rep agreed that the machine should be replaced.

Last month I took delivery of a brand new 27in iMac with a graphics card upgrade as my original had been upspecced on purchase.

Ok, the reliability of my iMac left a lot to be desired and the down time was very inconvenient, but at the end of the day Apple came through with a new machine and you don't get that kind of service with most other insurance policies.

The repair delays can be frustrating but my understanding is often this is down to bench testing to ensure the problem is fixed before returning the unit to the customer. I have nothing but praise for Applecare and the service they gave and would have no hesitation in recommending it.
