Or, pull the harddrive like someone did for the computer I found in the trash. I took it home. put in my own harddrive, fired it up. and it works fine. They even left the RAM strips. All of your personal info is in the harddrive. remove or clear with a powerful magnet and you're home free.

Regarding a case that was opened on an iPhone that I sold.

We can't help you with problems like this. We only provide information. You need to contact eBay or whomever you sold it through. If the buyer has closed the case, you have to assume they are happy. They may have THOUGHT they got the wrong item and then decided they did and are happy with the sale.

It may also be that they were trying to scam YOU by saying they got something else and thought better of it. You can report the phone you sold as stolen and have it permanently locked. They may have thought of this.

Sold computer need to clean hard drive How do I do it

Lynette, if data on hard drive is useless, erase it. If you have useful info and can use that drive in a newly replaced computer then only take the trouble to replace it because it is costly and time consuming. If the info is of no use to the buyer and can do no harm to you, let it stay. The buyer will delete.

I am trying to do a system recovery on my Compaq Presario SR2050NX in order to give it away. I have tried using the F10 System Recovery function and have also used "Start, All Programs, PC Help &

Recovery/Restoration Disk

Yes, I read what you stated

In order to remove all your personal information; at least in the extent you have indicated; you need the Restoration Disk,
or a Full Installation disk. As in a new genuine copy of Windows.

Restoration Disk is a LOT cheaper than a new genuine copy of Windows.

[Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer]

Going with information from the US;
The disk is free

The shipping and handling is not

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have the Serial Number written down to give to the nice representative.
This is located in the white Service Tag, on the back of the desktop computer.
S/N = Serial Number

Restoration disk installed, when you are asked choose Full Install.
Destructive Installation

Takes the computer back to Day 1 from the factory

All your personal info is gone

Now let's talk a minute
Your personal information isn't really gone. Even with a 'shredder' program that writes 0's and 1's, hundreds of times over the information on the harddrive, the information is STILL retrievable.

FBI and other agencies, have pulled info off of harddrive's that have been used by drug cartel's, that the computer was in a purposely bombed out building.(Drug lord/s did it)

The harddrive's were BADLY burned, but there was still enough info left.
Bye-bye bad guy's.

To TRULY get rid of any personal info on a harddrive, take it out, smash it with a hammer until very flat, and then burn it.
MAYBE this will do it.

What are the chances of someone, who has the know how to remove your old info?


Teenagers broke into the National Defense System.

My desk top is a compact presario 6400 nx and i need all files and componets that have been deleted back in the system to be able to have it run better

I suggest you use the Restoration Disk.

Start your computer put the disk in your optical drive tray.
When asked click on Non-Destructive Restore. (Repair)

If you click on Destructive Restore, (Full Installation), you will wipe out all personal documents you have saved.

For example:
Files in My Pictures, My Videos, My Music, personal documents you have created, and documents you have downloaded.

Non-Destructive Restore, or Repair, will repair the basic Windows files.

If you do not have the Restoration Disk for YOUR computer, you can order it from HP Support. (HP bought out Compaq)

In the USA there is no charge for the Restoration Disk.
The shipping and handling is Not free, however.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

This is the toll-free number to call in the USA, (24 hours a day, 7 days a week),

I am not familiar with support overseas, however here is the HP Support page for Worldwide,

Write down the Product Number, and Serial Number from your computer, to give to the nice person on the phone.
You'll find it in the white Service Tag.

The Service Tag will be located on the back of your computer tower, or up on the side.

Example: Look on the product identification labels)

How i can change language spanish inti english

Acer says "Computers are sold with a particular language preinstalled and available on the recovery media. Additional languages are not available. If a language other than the original shipping language is desired, a copy of the operating system in that language would need to be purchased. Restoration of the operating system with recovery media will restore the computer to the original shipping language of the operating system."

Deleting old contacts and pics

All your information is stored on the SIM card. The only thing that "stays" with the phone are custom ringtones, games, etc.

You can always perform a master reset from the settings menu to delete these and restore the phone to factory specs.
