How to delete all infomation off my laptop

TomTate - Latest answer on Nov 18, 2009 11:21AM
I have a Acer Aspire 5100, and it's rather old now. How do I delete all infomation from it so I can sell it? (so no one can use my infomation).
I have Vista on my laptop, so I'm not sure how much this changes anything.
I need a step-by-step guide of exactuly how to delete everything, I hear rebooting is the best idea, I have the Acer Vista disc's, but I don't know how to reboot or anything.
Please help!

to boot from cd and restore your machine to factory setting
