How can I reinstall my Macbook 10.6.8 for free. Is there a free download?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities


    You should have the Mac OS X Snow Leopard disc to reinstall it, and Snow Leopard isn't available as a download. Insert the OS X disc, press C key while your computer is starting and reinstall OS X

    If you are unlucky enough to find a free copy of Snow Leopard on any of the Torrent site, don't bother downloading it. Besides being illegal, those copies are generally crammed with malware.


    So go the easy thing and purchase the Snow Leoard DVD from Apple for $19.95.
