Sony Vaio Wipe and Erase

by nokia42_2010 / August 23, 2008 1:31 AM PDT

Hi

I hope you can help.

I have damaged my screen and cannot see anything on it and want to get it repaired. However, before I do this I want to wipe and erase the data on the hard disk.

If anyone has the same model, please can you provide a step to step guide on how to do this using a keyword, as I am doing it blindly.

I look forward to your help Happy

Thanks,
