Well 4 me. I was thinking of bringing my mac back to its factory state, is it possible? I have the install cds that came with it. If there is a way, what are the dangers of doing it.

Hmm... I did that by accident when I first bought my mac. I went through the setup, and then popped the disk in. Didn't go so good. After a while, though, I got my new Mac back. By "back to factory state" do you mean, none of your files, accounts-anything will be there? I'm not sure if that's a great idea. And one more question... why would you want to do this?

I mean, i want it to be the way when i first turned it on. Because i feel like its not running as smooth as it was at fist. What happened when u installed the disks?

Yes you can do that. Pop in your install disk and restart holding down the C key. It should boot from the disk and you can do it from there.

It's not going to make bad things happen. You'll lose everything on the hard drive, but you're expecting that.
