Windows 7: Transferring Files From Old Beeping Laptop to New Laptop Question

Transferring Files From Old Beeping Laptop to New Laptop Question

Old laptop is asus u45jc-a1. New laptop i bought is a sager laptop. My asus laptop has lot of problems. First off, when connected to a monitor, monitor would go to sleep or power save depending on the type of monitor. I had thought this was a monitor issue until i saw this was with several monitors so issue is my laptop. Someone mentioned its the driver but when i downloaded the driver online, computer always had black screen after installing it and i had to system restore it every time.

Besides that, there is a constant beeping sound with the laptop. If i have the laptop on for say 10 hours, iit probably beeps at least 100 times at least an hour. It would beep beep beep every few seconds. You might even hear 20 beeps in 1 minute. Sometimes it doesn't beat for 30 minutes or so but then go back on beeping. Someone said this either has to do with motherboard or ram.

First off, how would i know which is it? Also i do plan to do a clean resintall as well. Is there a chance if i do the clean reinstall, the beeping problem would go away or absolutely not?

Back to my original question though... i would like to transfer a database from old computer to the new sager one. I mainly play online poker and use this program called holdem manager that has all the hands i played and i could transfer it to the new laptop but doing a backup and restore. Thus i would have that file put it on, then transfer it to the new laptop. I know many ppl who play online poker do this when they do a clean reinstall or buy new computer.

What im a bit worried about is since my asus laptop has lot of problems such as connecting monitor has issues and most importantly the constant beeping which means its a motherboard or ram or driver problem... is there any chance i could transfer some damage to the new laptop this way? The database is going to be huge in terms of gb so i can't just transfer it with a usb and need to download it to or similar online storage site.

Computer POST and beep codes are how a mobo tells you there are problems. Reinstalling will not resolve this as it is a hardware issue.

You can't transfer any hardware problems to the new PC by moving data files over so I would do it as soon as possible, and before running any further hardware tests provided in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Another way to transfer the file is to put both of the PC's on the same Homegroup and share the file to copy it via the Homegroup - Create
