VistaKing! Mahbud :) Sure and by the way I got a refund on my malfunctioning computer from squaretrade (full retail refund!) And bought a new, more powerful computer

Well I'm not sure if it goes against the rules so I won't link unless o know its allowed but there is a dell keygen floating around in space, that you download. What I did was, if you saw the attachment it said ***(+ the serial number) and 2A7B now what you dp is put the characters in the generator EXACTLY in all caps and the *** (if applicable) and hit enter. It tells you the name and model, and the pasword. Write it down, and input it exactly making sure you understand what the difference is between a 0 and a highercase O (look very closely and type carefully)

However, it is performing a secure erase... The hdd will be usable but, all data destroyed. This method appears to be a recovery method and so it does come with a price. I think you can ask others to do this for you, but it doesn't always have a 100% success rate and you may need to shift-click or ctrl and click.

At least I don't have a paperweight anymore. 30 mins remain on the "secure erase"
