Need help wiping dual harddrives on laptop

Hello,
I am tryingto completely wipe the 2 harddrives on my laptop and install ubuntu. I already tried using the ubuntu disk to wipe and install. After Ubuntu loaded up lo and behold there were still old files on my computer. I want EVERYTHING gone from these hard drives and just Ubuntu on there... any suggestions?

  1. You need a secure erase program (a program that writes over the top of the hard drive) it takes longer but it does completely erase your hard drive
