You should be able to plug your old external drive into the new drive and use the data on there without any problem. Any applications that were installed on the old computer, though, need to be reinstalled on the new computer.

As for using your TV as a monitor, it looks like your new computer has a HDMI port. You theoretically should be able to connect the computer to the monitor using a standard HDMI cable and then specify in the display properties to you use the second monitor.

One thing I'd like to add.  Because your previous computer was 32 bit and your new computer is 64 bit, programs designed for the old computer may not work on the new one.  You may need to get 64 bit versions.

Hi Orange Blossum

I understand that you had to move my Thread. Where do I find it now I need to see if I recieved any help on that problem? I saw your advice 32 to 64 Bitdon't mix BUT All my old "installed Programs" Windows XP 32 bit are  still on my old computer! I have reinstalled and downloaded all the exact same 'Programs' on this New Computer in fact every program I have downloaded asked to install "Win 8x86"!

The new programs installed in the "Programs folder" on the new Computer are Listed as Programs Or Programsx86. I really am getting concerned and need to get some advice, could you please advise me where my thread is posted?

I thought it was still related to the" Questions and advice for Buying a new computer" thread? It is related to my initial thread asking Is "Win8 32 Bit or 64 Bit" and will "Windows 32 and Windows8 64 bit talk to each other" I believe they are both versions of 32 and 64 Bit

 

Cheers Dasha
