How I do that.

I use another machine and head to's laptop support site. I'll put the drivers on CD or USB stick whichever works.

What is otu ?

Toshiba or your support staff need a plan. Let's see what HP noted at this link ->

But first let me share I do not have the plan for your machine. If you opted out of using restore media for a machine this plan will be made by you for you for this machine.

I can't guess what your goal was to forgo the supplied OS but when you do that you or your support gets to make a plan.

I always try the manufacturer's site for drivers first

I clicked on the Toshiba link.

When I selected Windows 7 it gave me one driver to fetch.

Seems there is only one driver required?

new question

actually i have a new kind of thread question, i dont want to conserve forum posts.

after downloading windows xp professional i found i can access the files on the other part of my computer. The other part of the computer wasn't working, (not letting me log into my desktop. it kept kicking me off to the windows log in screen). this happened after i did a virus check and the antivirus deleted some windows files.

is there a way i can replace the windows files from my windows xp professional partitioned part of the computer and implant it into the corrupted windows part?

Usually no.

Such repairs are only done by the most seasoned support staff. If there is a failing in Windows it is this. Few (or none?) automated tools that would repair the OS and leave the owners files unscathed.

This is why you read and hear so much about backup.
