Default [Q] Factory reset with black screen

I have a Sensation that the screen has blacked out on. The backlight is still there, and it responds to touch, also the dock buttons are lit up. I would like to sell it, but want to factory reset it first, to get rid of all my texts and contacts, info, passwords, etc. is it possible to reset it using my PC without being able to see the screen?

you can try this

download the ruu.exe which corresponds to your region(same firmware or higher) and cid
boot the device into bootloader and connect it to pc in fastboot mode(in the screen it should say fastboot usb)
then run the exe from pc
