  1. I have an old laptop that I need to recyle? What can I do to delete all the personal stuff on it so I don't give my information to everyone. I can't ask my husband because he is a Pack rat that won't give up anything. I've had this for years and just want to get rid of it. Please let me know! Thank you!!
     
  2. How old is it? What make/model?
     
  3. Charles my hero :flowers:

    It is so old don't laugh! Compaq Presario 1235!
     
  4. Wow! That is old. I was gonna see if you wanted to sell it to me, but it's a bit too old for my needs.

    To answer your question though, some charities in your area might take it. And for wiping the info, there should be software to handle that.

    Here's one way
