If I move my hard drive to a different laptop will it move everything I need?

I dropped my laptop and the screen broke (at least that is the obvious damage). I was quoted about $800 to repair and replace it.

I don't want to buy a new different one right now for several reasons. Is it possible to just buy an identical used computer and switch hard drives (assuming the used one is in working order)?

I have a Gateway Solo 5300 with Win98SE, Office XP, and several other registered programs.

Thanks

Yeah, that will probably work! You might have to DL a driver or two but Win98 moves pretty good from computer to computer...

If you don't want to buy a different laptop, you'll have to look on eBay or maybe a local used computer store to find a laptop like the one you have.
