Default Prepping a Computer for Sale without Recovery Disk?

I was wondering if it was possible to clear off all sensitive data and the like on my Asus Seashell 1201N without having the hard drive recovery software (installed new hard drive a LONG time ago and no recovery disk with it?

Being an OEM install I can't access Windows 7 install because of the new Website requiring a Non-OEM license to authenticate it so I am out of luck doing that.

My question is, is there a way to effectively clear off all things that I do not want on it and prepare it for sale without the recovery disks? Or is there a way to get a clean copy of Windows 7 so I can clear it off?

Thanks a lot.
