Wiping laptop.

#1
I've just bought a shiny new one and am giving my old one away to my neighbour, an Acer about 3 years old. Nothing dodgy on it and she probably visits more adult interest sites than myself so not worried there however would like to erase the drives / computer as much as posssible. I have no idea whatsoever how to do this and haven't got the origional system discs which the laptop came with. Can anyone give me an idiots guide on how to reset it back to factory settings? Regards, Bry.

Hahahahahahaha. Yeah Bry sounds much cooler than Bryan doesn't it. I bet all the groovy chicks in the discotech swoon when you swan over in your Farah slacks and pastel coloured sweater and say "Hey there little ladies, the names Bry."

If my parents had named me Bryan I'd set them on fire, then I'd change my name. Then seeing as it's the most boring member on the site i'm sure it's a good enough name for him.
If we're lucky he'll say more words.

It'll be even better if his surname's Fry.

WHAT ??!! I made my solution up (with it been friday), hoping you'd ask for a picture of 'mine'....
Honestly, it works mate. Ill send you a picture if you want.

Depends on the laptop. Some manufacturers reserve a small portion of the hard disk to store the factory recovery image. If not, you can order from the manufacturer for a small fee the Recovery Disks (CD/DVD) to wipe and reload the system

So a pin-hole reset button wiped and reset your laptop for you? What a load of bullshit, but for the life of me I cannot think of any reason that someone would lie about that (FlashBang's original post was quite a good mini wind-up so understand that part of it).

He had me fooled. I got an old lappy which I want to take away with me on work trips. It aint been used for 3 yrs & has issues. I thought a factory restore would solve all this. That bastard Flash Bang.. had me looking at the back of the damn thing for a good 10 mins. The utter utter ****. :)
