Hello, well the problem is, my computer will not start up saying something about a usb being plugged in, when I unplug all things using a usb port and the error still comes up and pc will not start. I have done some of my own thinking that wiping the hard drive will help me out, on a desktop, I have a windows 7 waiting to be installed on it. But the question at hand is, how do I wipe the hard drive from a desktop using a laptop? The hard drive is a 500GB/7200rpm/16M Samsung HDD, Just recently bought before the start of summer. If you can help I will take any thank you for viewing this post.
When you go to install win 7, boot from the cd - during the install process you will have the ability to wipe the HD (delete existing partition & create a new one, then format it). Just make sure you don't have any files on that drive that you want to save.
