Giving away my old laptop...
So I plan on buying a new laptop this week, and will be giving my old one away to a family member. What is the best way for me to completely wipe my old laptop's HDD? It came installed with Vista but I upgraded to Win7 (from downloading it from Windows' website), if that helps any. Thanks.
Also while I'm at it, for my new laptop, how can I partition the HDD so that I can have system data on one, and stuff like pics, videos and games on another?

did the old laptop come with recovery cds? that would be the best way..if all else fails you can always install a clean version of windows after you get your info off!!!!
as for partitioning the hdd theres applications all over the net to download..i have never really did a partition on any hdd over the years so i dont know much about it sorryTHREAD RULES:
