Hello Phillpower2

I haven't had any additional success with this machine.  I'm thinking that it is time to send it off for recycling and move onto something more productive.

Do you have any recommendations on confidently wiping the hard drive or is it just still best to remove and destroy it?

Best regards,

Only taking a hammer to the drive can make it completely inaccessible, if no personal data such as banking details are on the HDD you could wipe it with DBan which is about as clean as you will get the drive, download from here
