If you haven't disposed of your old computer don't.  At least until you solve the current problem.  Networking the old with the new may be your best solution.
I don't know jack about networking Windows, but I've kept a couple of obsolete Macs around for storage and running legacy software that doesn't play well with OSX. Everything's hooked together with a combination of Ethernet and wireless. Ethernet really works well for this sort of thing because it's pretty generic and OS independent. It's the perfect solution, especially if you hate throwing stuff out. Seems like you should be able to use your old machine to run your plotter and feed it from whatever new hardware you end up with.
