not exacly, it's you who wants to do that!

But the problem with this, is that i wanted to keep the stuff on my old laptop, like the drive, software, hardware, and other computer systems
If you just take your hard drive out and put it in a new PC then windows will detect multiple hardware changes, and possibly not work at all. so your only road is to not change hardware (e.g. buy all the same hardware).

Personally, I'd take the laptop with the broken screen and plug a monitor into it and just use it as a PC, or as a file server in my house, then get a different PC to use day to day - it's probably not going to be rewarding to spend more keeping the same system.
(a new laptop is probably cheaper than repairing, and will probably be faster etc)

I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
