I have windows live mail on my new laptop but outlook express on an old one where I had a lot of emails held there, looking for a way to recover the mail on the old laptop or could I do it on windows live mail on the new one ???

Think that will only work if I have the emails in outlook express, everything seems to have disappeared from the old lap top, if I try to send an email from it nothing happens.

Can I assume that your old laptop is an XP Machine.
If so can you use search to find msimn.exe
If you find msimn.exe double click and run it.

If you can successfully run Outlook Express try the following
go to Tools/Options/General down near the bottom there should be an Option to make OE your Default Mail Handler.
If you succed please post results

Check the Outlook Express on all places like in Start menu → All programs → Outlook Express and also in Control Panel → Add or Remove Programs. If it is not found here then go to C:\Program Files\Outlook Express and double click on msimn.exe. This will open Outlook Express.
