In other words, am I able to use my Laptop discs (which came with the laptop) for my PC? So I don't have to go out and re-buy Windows 7.

Any help would be appreciated.

No you can't. Your laptop recovery discs can only be used on your laptop, they won't work on a different make/model of computer.

No, you can't.

1. It will see the non-original hardware, and not install
2. Even if it did install, it would not activate. That copy of windows is tied to that laptop motherboard.
3. New machine = new copy of Windows.
