    Remove all info from computer that is being returned


    Hello,

    Just bought a new HP computer and when I was setting it up all information from my current computer was transferred to my new one without doing anything. I thought ok, no problem. however when I went to register it I was told I had 8 months left on my warranty. I just purchased this on 10/24/2020 but the information said the warranty began in June 2020 and would expire 7/2021. I was on a chat with an HP representative and ask how could this be? I was told to upload a copy of my invoice and they would adjust the warranty period. I asked if the had be registered to someone else and they said they didn't know. I thought this was not true so I am sending the computer back, how do I delete all of my information?


    Thank you

    GPUz Incorrect Info GF117

    I've got the GT620M in a Zenbook and the newest version of GPUz has it listed as a 40nm part whereas all other info on the web suggests its 28nm. Can you investigate, W1z?

    Thanks

    Hi bigax,

    I would suggest that you follow the steps RJFYEG suggested for you to follow. However!... "Before" you do this, Make sure to do a Complete Dish Image of your system to a External Hard Drive. (Just encase of problems so you can return to your
    existing system state without problems).
