Yes and no, are they both the same operating systems, usually the computer will search for the hard drive and reconfigure the setting and it may work, sometimes it will not reconfigure, just keeps running. Try it can not hurt anything will work or not.

Hi, Power supply died in my 10 year old computer. I put in a new one. The motherboard M6 STL light comes on. The cpu fan runs. The CD door opens and closes. That's it. Please help. Bruce

Possibly the power supply died whilst and caused damage to the system board or video board.
Have you still got the system board manual with the "Beep codes"? that will tell you which area to look. It is likely the video board has crashed.
Hope that helps.

The computer is indicating that something is preventing it from booting to the hard disk drive. Ensure that if the system has a floppy diskette drive, there is no diskette in the drive as the system may be trying to boot to it and failing.
If no floppy or no other Media (DVD/CD) in any drive then the Hard Disk Drive may be having problems and need repair.
(La computadora est? indicando que algo est? evitando que pateara a la impulsi?n de disco duro. Aseg?rese de que si el sistema tiene una disquetera floja, no haya diskette en la impulsi?n pues el sistema puede intentar patear a ?l y a fallar. Si ningu?n disco blando o ningunos otros medios (DVD/CD) en cualquier impulsi?n entonces la impulsi?n de disco duro puede tener problemas y necesitar la reparaci?n.)

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

Gt 4016 when I finally can get the button on, the fan runs for about 15 seconds then shuts down.

May be your motherboard is defective or else cpu temperature is high. try to see it in the bios by pressing delete botton or F2 in the startup and goto to the hardware monitor.

I want to pull info off a hard drive & put onto a disc.

If your new computer doesn't accommodate the drive then you will need a three and a half inch hard drive enclosure to put the hard dive in from the other computer.
You will have to look at the drive to work out which type enclosure you will need.
It will either be a SATA connection like this >>>>

Or a IDE/ATA connection like this >>>>

If you compare the connections on these examples you will one has plastic connections and one has brass pin connections.
As soon as you know which type of drive you have you can then proceed to purchase an enclosure.
When you have got the correct enclosure all you have to do is install the drive and connect it your new computer.
You will be able to access the drive, copy your data and use the drive as an external hard drive.

Gateway computer does not turn on

Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.

Plug off your Hard Disk and give a try. If the system boots then, its a prob with HDD. Else, it may be because of the monitor, or the RAM module.

they must have put it fully factory, you need to get your cd to start up before the hard drive does so you can use windows utility on to format and partition it , you may need to go into the setup (bios) and change the boot sequence to cd/dvd rom before the hard drive and run windows setup utility to install the OS on your new harddrive
