Hi, my old desktop's motherboard died the other day. And instead of replacing it, I decided just to buy a new computer since you generally get more from that. But with my dead computer, I still have a lot of files on my old hardrive. I was wondering how would I install it on my new computer?

Do I just plug it into a empty drive slot?

Also, will there be any complications of some of the software is not compatible with my new computer?

For example, my old computer was an Hp and it has some software that only works with the Hp system. If I get a new Sony desktop, what will happen with the Hp software?

Thanks for you help.

My old computer recently passed away, so I had to build in the harddrives from the old computer in to my new computer.

It's just plug and play, actually. If your drives are connected properly, the system should recognize them, and there you go :)

About the software not working on your new system, I don't know anything about that, I'm sorry :tazz:
