SOURCE: I am selling a sony vaio desktop and want to reset

Just go to the start button, all programs, accessories, and click on the command prompt. At the c; prompt in the window, type the following:
Format C:
answer all of the questions with "yes"
This will totally wipe the hard drive of all info.
If you have the original installation disks, you may want to give them to the new owners. It will make it easier to reload the operating system and drivers.,
so basically you should Format the drive, then install an operating system such as xp, or windows 7 .... it should install most of the correct drivers. If you have the original disks that came with the computer, use those.You may have to go to the manufactures website to find the exact drivers for the video and sound cards., but that should pretty much return it to factory settings. If you are really picky and have the bucks, you can contact SONY for the original disks.
PLEASE CLICK ON SOME THUMBS UP FOR THE ADVICE!!!
