Default Do old computers know they've been replaced?

Do old computers know they've been replaced with a better model?

Reason is, and i haven't done anything to it, is we've got the new one connected up, but today I needed to grab backups off the old one, so I tried to turn the old one on.

The motherboard LED is just flashing continuously and won't allow me to power it on.

Weird... I'll have to try and plug the old hard drive up to the new computer now!

EDIT:

Got it powered up. Had to leave it off for a bit, but it seems like the drives died in the process?

EDIT 2:

Its working now, but it seems to be on its way out

I like palying around with old computers, I like playing around on them and finding out new things and testing out new programs on them before installing them on my puter.

if not the old school computers still making waves in the pool of computing, at least alot of the old school games are coming back. <cool>

I like keeping older PCs, so long as they're not too old. My oldest PC that still gets used is a Pentium III 866mhz. Slap ubuntu on there, let the kiddies use it for their myspace crap.

My P4 didn't act up at all when being replaced. It still works fine. Maybe it just doesn't know yet that it will be sold soon...

Mine always acts up when people are over!! I have my cousins over, and I'm like, hey I got GRAW2, wanna try it out, and they say Yeah!!! Than I start it up, and it gives me an error message, "Your computer is being gay, and has caused the application "GRAW2" to terminate in an unusual way, please try it in a more straight way." And it wont work. Just tried it now, and it works ok.
Or, I'll be showing a new game to someone, and they go, "Whats that smell?" And, than I have to restart the computer or something, cause the graphics card started on fire...

lol, but it does act up a lot. Always errors when someone comes over.
