Welcome to PCHF Louie69,

You mention that you want to completely wipe the computer before you sell it and that you cant reset it without a windows CD or disk.

For clarity, are you asking for help with just formatting the HDD and selling the computer with no OS installed or are you wanting to format the HDD and reinstall Windows 7 before you sell the computer.

Did you ever create the Factory Restore disk for the system?

I have seen with some systems that once they are created you have to use them to preform the Factory Restore.
