So I got a virus and I'm wanting to completely wipe the hard drive, but when I load up DBAN on my G751JT-Ch71 with a USB, DBAN doesn't detect the hard drive.

tikonux, check out the DBAN site for why :)

http://www.dban.org/

"However, DBAN users should be aware of some product limitations, including:
No guarantee of data removal (e.g. DBAN does not detect or securely erase SSDs)
No audit-ready reporting for regulatory compliance
Limited hardware support (e.g. no RAID dismantling)
No customer support or regular software updates"

It sounds like all the real development and support goes with a product purchase of the Blanco product, now Blanco 5.

Download evaluation version - demo versions don't erase, but you can see if it see's your device(s)
