How to completely format my computer?

I am about to sell my computer and all of it components, i know how to format my hard drive from a windows boot disk, but does that really get rid of every single trace of everything or are some thing still recoverable? I need to make sure of this so the new owner does not get hold of any sensitive information like bank details from the hard drive and is there anywhere else a computer stores information that might need to be deleted or is it just the hard drive?

I can't tell you if your HDD will be sterile as a result of full format (i.e. not quick format) but it must be a good start. Of course, you will lose the all the system files as well as data files. If you find 'format c drive' doesn't work, one solution would be to take the drive out, put it in another pc and use that to format the HDD before replacing it. You might have to jiggle drive settings but most likely the bios will detect the second HDD without any problem. If your pc doesn't have a spare HDD connector, you can buy a HDD/USB adapter cable but get the correct type for your drive.
