put the recovery disk in > shut your computer down > power it up > follow the on screen instructions

If possible sell it without the harddrive - as you will never remove all your details from it at the level of abilities you claim.

if you are confident then format the hard drive then use the restore disc.

Which is not a good idea unless you know the restore disk contains a full operating system.

after recovering the factory default, dont forget to erase your trace using ERASER http://www.heidi.ie/node/6
