It all depends on what type of ban was used on that machine. Swapping hard drives might not always work if the ban was IP, Mac address or Motherboard ID related.  Thing is, you aren't really gonna till you try a few things out.

This is one of the many risks of buying a used PC from someone you don't know.  🙁
