Please use the HP Recovery Manager or the HP Recovery Discs you created, to return the computer to a factory like state. If you are worried that someone may still get your personal information, download DBAN 2.2.8 Beta for CD-R and DVD-R media. After you burn this bootable ISO, insert the CD/DVD into the computer and boot DBAN. Select the options to erase the hard drive and let it run. When finished use your HP Recovery Discs to return the computer to a factory like state.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
