hi there,

no you will not be able to use those cd

as its for hp and your pc is Toshiba

it will create problems with the drivers and this will not function well

Thanks
okay but i can use his computer to download the drivers I need directly from the toshiba website so couldnt I just use a flash drive to replace the HP drivers with Toshiba ones or would that be more problematic than Im thinking it would be?

No, there is no way you can modify the HP computer restore disks to work with your laptop.
