on new computer then my old address and coins recoverable is yes then how

please give some information thanks   

Sorry to post this PM I received, but I'd hate being responsible for any damage.
From what I understand, you just need to copy your wallet.dat file (from old computer) to a secure location, before you reinstall QT on the new computer.
Then copy back your wallet.dat to the new computer, and you should be fine, once the blockchain has finished updating (which can take up to a a long time (weeks), depending on your bandwitdth).

Wallet path depends (mostly) on OS.
What OS do you use?

Then open a windows explorer (win+e if not sure, hold both keys together), then browse to
C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application data\Bitcoin

Replace your YourUserName with your actual user name, and you should see a wallet.dat file.
If so, copy this file it to a usb stick, for example.

Search for for any other wallet.dat file (win+f => walllet.dat) on your old computer, before, and backup each of those.
Then let your new computer download the blockchain. This can take a lot of time, don't lose patience.
Quit the QT client (on new computer), and copy the wallet.dat backup you're the most confident with over the empty one created on you new computer. (If same OS and same user, same location).

Spreading your mining effort across all 3 does not seem bad to me.
But keep in mind this is my opinion, and it's probably worthless.

Then once you're done with getting the blockchain, shut QT down, replace the empty wallet it created in your
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application data\Bitcoin
folder by the one from your usb stick.

I would also make another copy the wallet.dat somewhere else on your harddrive (I don't really trust usb sticks with such "important" data)

After that, create/edit the shortcut you're using to launch QT, and add " -rescan" in the end of the "Target" input box.

Should look like:
Code:
...\bitcoin-qt.exe -rescan
where ... is the location of your bitcoin-qt client.

Your balance should be ok, then.
If not, don't panic, QT is sometimes a bit dodgy when it comes to computing balances, we'll find another way.

I'm sorry, but I'd rather not connect to your computer.
Is anything unclear in the following sequence:
- Shutdown Bitcoin-QT
- If your current wallet was not empty, copy it to a safe location
- Replace your current wallet by the one your extracted from your old computer (make sure you don't delete this "old" wallet until you successfully moved the coins out of it)
- Restart QT with a "-rescan" switch
