So you have a MacBook or MacBook Pro? I'm guessing it's a notebook since you mentioned battery.

You should be able to insert the install disc, restart and while it is restarting hold the "C" button until your Mac boots into the installer. This can take a while, so be patient and hold the "C" button until you see the Mac startup. Up at the top will be a menu (might have to wait a few seconds for it to show up) and one item should be Utilities. Click on that and select "Disk Utility". When D.U. opens, select your Mac's HDD on the left - it will say MacBook or Ted's Mac or whatever you named it. Then click on the First Aid tab. Click the Verify Permissions button and let it run. Most likely some issues will come up and when it's done, click on Repair Permissions. Then do the same thing with the Verify Disk buttons. It will tell you if anything needs repaired and if there is a problem with your hard drive.

If this is too confusing, you can find YouTube videos showing you step by step.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
