Hello Halvoris,

We'll need some more information to help you. What kind of database software are you using? Are the two computers connected by a network?

Give some good details and we'll be able to help you out.

It depends on the database, but one way is to simply make a dump of the database (into a file or files), then move the file(s) to the other computer and pull the dumped content back into database. For example in MySQL databases this is how you take backups.
