    How to prepare my computer for selling on

    So i need to totally restore it back to when i first got it.

    I have the recovery dvd, what should i do now?

    Keep in my mind im not 100% clued up on everything PC wise, so keep it simple!

    Thanks in advance.

    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.
