    I have a 2009 white macbook and the icons have a question mark, I cant open ANYTHING and safari is gone, is there a way I can factory reset without a disc or someone tell me the correct disc that would be much appreciated, I also have tried command r and alt it does not work.

    command-r won't work on your machine as recovery is not supported on that older model. Do you still have the grey installer DVDs that came with the machine?

    It did not come with CDS, I purchased it used on Amazon, but I was wondering if I can find the discs on amazon.

    Just call 1800MYAPPLE and they will see you the grey OEM disks for your machine.

    Another option is to purchase a Snow Leopard disc from Apple and then upgrade to a later version of Mac OS X such as 10.10.
