How to change a connection string to an SQL database

Hello ...I had an SQL database stored in my laptop.Unfortenatelly my laptop was broken for a reason...I saved the hard drive ...and bought a new laptop.
This sql database used a connection string named: FM_beConnectionstring1(MySettings) and the route was :Data Source=SPARTAN2-PC\VAIO_VEDB;Initial Catalog=FM_be;Integrated Security=True
(FM_be is name of the database)
this does not work in my new laptop ...and all my datasets use this route...
how can i change this without creating the datasets from the begining...
thank you in advance

Kindly check whether
1. Your new laptop name is SPARTAN2-PC\VAIO_VEDB.
2. Remote configurations are enabled for SQL Server.
3. FM_be database is available in your new laptop.
