I have an old laptop which I want to dispose of, as it hasn't worked properly for many years. I now use an all-in-one table top pc (HP) and wish to remove all data from laptop and dispose of it. What is the best way to do this.

If you mean bin it just removing the hard drive would do that I believe.

Or set it back to factory settings if selling it.
