a Computer to PCReNew
The minimum hardware that we are currently
Pentium 500 or better, 128 meg ram, 10 gig hard drive.
are some helpful things to do first if the computer is currently operational.
1 - Tell us what kind of computer hardware/software it is to ensure
it meets minimum requirements shown above. Do this by downloading a
free utility program, SIW,
and running it on your system. Print out or copy the information shown
under 'Hardware,' 'System Info' (Machine Type, Disk Space, Physical
Memory) and under 'Hardware,' 'Motherboard' (CPU, Max. CPU Speed) and
the information shown under 'Software,' 'Operating System' (Serial
Number, Product Key and Product Name). Or, download another system
information program from http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html and
give us the similar information shown there.
2 - After you are sure you have removed any useful personal data from
the PC, wipe all data from the hard disk with a government certified
'Wipe' program as can be found at: http://www.killdisk.com/ There
is a free version that can be used to wipe out and make irretrievable
any personal data on your computer. Our processing of your PC includes
wiping out all data on the hard disk if you you prefer.
