Laptop HD Formatting
I tried to search, but found nothing useful to help me. Maybe one of you know the answer to my question.
I have a laptop, with a cd-rom bay (no internal floppy or external). I would like to use Active Kill Hard Disk Eraser to run a DoD formatting program (killdsk.exe) to completely wipe my hard disk clean before selling it to this lady online.
Tell me if I am on the right track:
I put the Windows XP Recovery DVD given to my from Compaq. It loads the Windows XP Installation blue screens and what not. When I get the option to recover, I press "r". From there it brings up "DOS", and I say D: after that I just typed in killdsk, and nothing happened. Then I tried killdsk.exe, and run killdsk, and nothing worked!!!
Anyone have any ideas!?
