I have an Acer Aspire model 5532. I just purchased another Acer Aspire model 5349. If I took the hard drive from the 5532 and installed it in the 5349 would it create any issues. This hard drive already has my programs on it. Was thinking it would be easier than re-loading the programs on the new one.

Chances are it won't work. The drivers are likely to be different, and the OS is probably tied to the original machine.
Bite the bullet and reinstall your apps.
