Default Re: Wipeing my harddrive

Thanks for all the help. Everything is like new except I can't put my computer into standby mode anymore. If you have any ideas on how to fix this it would be great. Thanks.

When I wipe my HDD, I back my stuff up to some form of media and then run Boot and Nuke. It is a small Linux Distro that runs great and it completely wipes your HDD. It takes a while, but it is a great and sure way to clean your HDD. Here is a link to it:
