Hope I'm not stating the obvious but have you installed the FTM software on your new computer ?
Depending on which version you have  you may be able to get a link from Software Mckiev  to install on a new machine.

Census Lookup and Resource Requests / Re: 1921 census please
« on: Thursday 03 November 22 10:21 GMT (UK)  »
Baptisms for John and Minnie :

John Sidney 5 May 1918 Rhayader , John Sidney and Minnie LEWIS , Cross Lane Rhayader, labourer

Minnie Rebekah 17 Apr 1921 ( born 3 Jul 1920 ) Rhayader , John Sidney and Minnie WATKINS formerly LEWIS  , Cross Lane Rhayader labourer.

Initially I thought formerly Lewis referred only to Minnie in the second entry , as is the format in registers in some areas , but I began to wonder about John Sidney WATKINS  as the name doesn't seem to appear in any matching earlier records. I now believe that his name was John Sidney LEWIS. There is a marriage for John S LEWIS and Minnie LEWIS 2Q 1915 Builth 11B 109 which may be relevant.
I am sending you a PM with further information and explanation which I cannot give here.
