    It turns out that my computer has died, and I've got one at home that I don't use. I've looked closely and both have got the same HDD, so if I take it from the dead PC and fit it into the other one, will the information be moved without being lost??

    Maybe! In theory it should be fine, but with a move like that you never know it's so easy to break thing or cause a malfunction. Sometimes there are special considerations. Are you adding the old drive as a second drive in the new computer? How old of a computer is it? It might need to be designated as a "slave" drive. You should look for a youtube video for how to install XXX Hard Drive on a PC for instructions.
