So i tryed pluggin my macbook into my tv to play videos on the tv.
After i plugged it in i restarted my macbook. At this point it wouldnt go past the white mac page with the swirrling thing under it.
I have my disks to reset the computer but i dont want to wipe it. Just install the origional drivers ect.
how do i go about doing this. Ilost my original disks but i got 2 replacements.
1 Macbook Mac OS X insall disc and
2. Mac OS X install disk.
im not sure how to use these.

You can install the OS without wiping your user account using the restore disks that came with the mac.
I just did a re-intall on a work imac today, although I had backed up first.Member of the Month September 2008 & August 2012 | Found advice useful? – use the rep system
