Good morning list!

My friend has an old Desktop COMPAQ Presario that he wants to sell / donate. He wants to wipe out any personal data from it. It has Windows XP in it but he has no CDs. I have tried to use the F10 function (System Recovery) and seem that is not getting activated and I have tried several free programs to try to format the hard drive but I have not found "the one" yet.

Can you guide me to the right path about how to initialize / format the hard drive?

Thanks in advance!
