Hello all, will be selling my mums computer on ebay soon as she no longer has need for it, but the computer itself never came with a windows disc (only a motherboard drivers disc type that wasn't very helpful.) Will list the specs of it at the end but the long and short of it is, i want to be able to sell it on ebay knowing any of her information will not be stored on it. (She has done internet banking etc.) So i want to make sure that's all gone. Tried using windows restore jobby but that only offers me back to december last year. This is all the information i could grab off it.

Zoostorm
45 CMX Series
Intel core2duo E4500 2.20ghz
2gb ram
vista home premium 32 bit

Any other details needed ask and i'll search around for them, thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

Nyxzy-

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

I would use an HDD-wiping program to completely clean all the data off your drive. I recommend using Derik's Boot and Nuke- you can find the link in my signature. You're going to create a bootable disk and wipe the drive from there- let me know if you need help with it. :)

Hope that helps! Let me know if there's anything else I can do to assist you. :)

Hey, thanks for the welcome and reply! That program looks like it'll do the trick to me. Will pick up some cd-rs and give it a try asap :) Thanks again!
