Default MOBO and old HD

I'm grading Motherboards and i would like to keep my old hard drive and run the previous programs. Will it not work or may i do that?

it depends on the mobo, try and find out. It should work, might not be fast though.

I wish I had a computer but I am broke!!!

Your more than likely going to have to wipe your hard drive and start from scratch. Unless your getting the same mobo as your old one.
