Heya, that's not hard at all Standard smile

All your games are tied to your Origin account and not the computer itself, so if you would like to play your games on another computer, simply download and install the Origin client, log in with the same Origin account that you were using before (there is no need to create a new one) and all your games will be sitting in your games library, just as they do now. From there you can download and install them again.

 

Let us know if that doesn't help or if there are any other questions.

@alexlikesfood27  That does sound like as if you are logging into a different account. Are you sure you are using the same account that you had used to initially register these games?

@Artyom_Kalash  No, you should be able to just follow the instructions provided here, a second purchase is not necessary if ypur games are already redeemed onto your Origin account: http://answers.ea.com/t5/Origin/HOW-TO-Backup-restore-Origin-games/td-p/3480967
