    I have a Macbook 2.4 GHz with Mac OS X and Windows XP installed and the thing is as slow and as buggy as can be. I want to wipe it completely clean but my disk drive is broken and I do not know where my restore disks are anyway...

    My question is how do I restore my Macbook (with Leopard) to factory defaults (getting rid of all users, programs, files, Windows) without the restore disks?

    Please Help,

    A 2.4 Macbook is still under warranty. Get it fixed. Apple should replace your discs since it is such a new computer.

    But...

    No way to completely restore it? I know all of the PCs I owned were able to do so through the BIOS?

    Anyway at all I can do it on my Mac? I am open to any ideas... My disc drive doesn't work...

    PLEASE ADVISE,

    No you can't restore on PCs with the BIOS either; what you're thinking of are those restore partitions on the HDD and no Apple doesn't not have that.

    You need the original DVDs.
