I had backed up my wallet.dat regularly. One day, my computer decided to crap out because GPU mining on my 6990 stressed my PSU to death. Sadly, the 1kw PSU met an unkind end due to its 5 year old age I suppose.

On any occasion, it took me several weeks to figure out it was the PSU due to multiple reasons. Not going there. What happened was my OS crapped out as well while trying to debunk the problem. A month later, my rig is up and running and better than ever. I never got around to restoring my wallet or bitcoin, and now I'm trying to.

I installed bitcoin, deleted the app directory out, and put in my old wallet.dat. So far, it says "0/unconfirmed" for all of my transactions. Am I doing something wrong? Am I supposed to change my address or something to my old one? How would one be able to find my old address?

I'm not one for donations but if you must go ahead and I will keep you in mind. =)

You can always go to http://blockexplorer.com and enter your Bitcoin address.

Take a look at the page;

The first seen block is your first transaction in your wallet - this is when you will see the first transaction in your restored wallet.
The last entry on the page is the last transaction in your wallet - this is when your wallet will be restored in full.

You will start receiving more and more confirmations on your transactions once the last transaction block is in your wallet.
