8.3 and 8.4 databases are not compatible.
If you want to see old DB - you need to install the same Postgres version. And set old "data" folder as database cluster during install.
But this is not possible when you install Postgres within "combo" HM installer. D-load a standalone PG from PostgreSQL: The world's most advanced open source database (http://www.postgresql.org)

Do you have a folder c:\program files\postgres\8.3\data?

If yes please download and install postgresql 8.3 from PostgreSQL: The world's most advanced open source database (http://www.postgresql.org) following this faq: http://faq.holdemmanager.com/questions/71/Reinstall+PostgreSQL+Preserving+Old+Database

You will need to install postgresql 8.3 to a different port (5433 for example) as you already have another postgresql version installed.
