You can only install Windows 7 on the new PC if it's a full retail version. If the installation disc came with the old PC, then it's probably an OEM version which means it's tied to that particular machine and cannot be moved to another one.
My older computer is bad and quit working. Repairman says it is not worth repareing. It has windows 7 on it and I have the windows 7 disc and the coa# number off the old computer. I have a newer computer, with windows xp on it. Can I call Microsoft and give them the serial # of my old computer and have it voided and use the same coa# and install it on my newer computer.?

No, because you don't have an installation disc, only an upgrade key.
My old computer had the full version on it. It was upgraded from windows XP. Does that mean it could be installed on the newer computer?
