    I don't know what you mean by "overloaded the memory". Regardless, you cannot reinstall OS X without an install disc. Unless you are running Lion. Please tell us what system you have, how much memory you have, what OS you are running, and more detail about your problem. And please stop yelling.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I'm almost sure OP means their hard drive is full (using improper terminology saying "overloaded the memory").

    @helpplease (catchy user ID BTW)!...no need to yell if you want help.

    You can either start deleting stuff you don't use anymore or buy an external to off load some of your files from your internal harddrive.
