The old dear BSOD-ed so hard last night it couldn't even finish rendering the BSOD itself, this looks CPU related according to the Google-o-tron, which is understandable considering it's a nine year old CPU that's been run substantially overclocked its entire life.

Overclocking costs lives!

I should get a new PC I suppose, but all my finances are tied up in chasing after stupid new cars. Like Mrs May I will have to prioritise spending in the national interest, as there is no magic money tree. I should find an Irish friend who wants a favour, as history suggests I'll discover a handy three grand in a biscuit tin under those circumstances.

I'm getting my new PC imminently and I would like to transfer the files off my old PC to it. What's the best/quickest way of doing this?

I'm no expert but could I have them both connected to my router and have a home network or something? Is that hard to do?

I’m guessing it won’t be as easy as just plugging them both in and magically, they’ll see each other.

Put your old hard drive into a spare bay in your new one?

I can do that with my internal hard drive but I have an external one that needs a power supply... which I don't have.

It slots into the top of my current PC and is powered that way. I suppose I could take it out of the casing as I reckon it'll just be a normal hard drive inside but I don't know whether that would work.

Should be a normal HD in the enclosure. Pop it open and have a look.

If you don't know whether it would work you could try it and then you'd know if it would work.

Christ, just set up the old drive as a network share!

Right click, find "sharing", give it a name. Go into the other PC, go to "network" and find the other drive.

Bosh.
