I bought the laptop from walmart a few months ago, and I was going to sell it so I can upgrade, but I don't want the chance some of my personal files might still be on it, is there a way I can reset it to factory settings?

CPU - Intel Atom N570 1.66GHz, 1MB L2 Cache
Memory - 1BG DDR3 Memory
With about 250GBs of storage
The graphics card came with it, computer says its a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150.

Check Amazon / eBay as an idea for prices. You can probably find someone to give $150, but be ready to accept anythink above $100. These days, one can get new 15" laptop with more memory and better processor for under $250.
