Did you also move the folders your images are stored in to the new computer?

The LrC catalog is just a Database file. Your images are NOT IN the catalog file.

 

Please review these tutorials for how LrC works and how to work with LrC.

With Lightroom closed, press the Windows key + R, type colorcpl in the box and press Enter.

Add the sRGB profile, then set it as default.
