Formatting the hard drive on the dead laptop

Good day, dear harrowdene!
In connection with the sale of the deceased's laptop, there is a need formatnut hard disk.
But the trouble is that the laptop burned the bridge, turn is not possible.
Stick the drive in another PC so can't.
All compounded by the fact that the laptop today, need to give, I will have to one time with him trouble before the sale.
Maybe there are some ways that would carry all the info with him?

to connect to another laptop/computer to boot from a linux live sit and go drive dd.
Or take a neodymium magnet and rismanchian, but it's easier still to find where to plug hard.
With magnets you can get a disk failure is permanent. Easier to give the laptop without a disc at all, as is often done. - ayla.Lowe78 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:27

And without disc to sell?
There is an agreement about the sales, I would not want to bring a human.
Actually the question is, can it be done some way, of course if it does not, we will negotiate. - ayla.Lowe78 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:29
Disk there is no opportunity anywhere to connect, I then only 1 offer is to screw up, for example, in the microwave stick. But I think that the buyer calculates that the hard drive is alive. - lorine_Swi commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:32

do I understand correctly:
1. removing the CD not?
2. to turn on the computer it is impossible?

the two right — you will only very powerful source of magnetic momentum.
or the honesty of the buyer.
Remove the CD from the can, but what does it mean?
There is a second laptop(too complicated design for disassembly, and guarantees), adapter, and spend $15 on an adapter given the cost of sales was not very helpful. - ayla.Lowe78 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:31

if to connect the screw to other computer is not possible, then only the source of electromagnetic radiation.
well or as a variant — any "stall" with the word "laptop repair" with the screw, and ask to format it for 50 rubles.
Oh and don't forget that formatting does not destroy data...
Quick format Yes, not destroys. However, a full format completely erases the surface section, but a full format is a very long process (several hours). - ayla.Lowe78 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:33
