If you have them on an iPod or iPhone, plug it in and use the Transfer Purchases function. The computer needs to be authorized from the Store menu first.

Otherwise, the question is "what died?" If it's the hard drive, you may have problems. If it's not the hard drive, but some other part of the computer (or even the operating system), you should be able to remove the hard drive and attach it to your new computer and copy the songs over. There are a number of other topics in here with links on how to accomplish this.
Also, if you have them on an iDevice (pod, phone, etc.) you should be able to "transfer purchases" to the new computer.
Recommend on the new computer to put all the music/apps on a hard drive separate from the one containing the operating system to hedge against future computer failure.PC, Windows XP
