I have two computers, both not the finest in brands, but for what I do, they're just fine.|
One, being an E-Machine. The E-Machine has around 3,000 pictures saved to it, programs installed such as photo programs, spyware removal, AIM, AOL and various others, and almost 200 music downloads.
The second and newer one is a Compaq. The Compaq, in addition to the E-Machine, has AOL installed in it. Ad-Aware SE and a printer that is never turned on. That is it.
Both computers are on dial up AOL, however...the E-Machine runs like it has DSL, and the Compaq is running basically like a dinosaur. I can stay online in my bedroom on the E-Machine for a week and not get booted once, and it's fast(er). The Compaq is beyond slow, and throws me off every hour or two. It's very aggrivating, because I got the Compaq for the printer I got. The printer wouldn't work on the E-Machine because it was lacking ports or something. So the printer works on the Compaq but its a bitch to stay online in the living room because its so slow.
WHY is it like that, and how can I fix it?
They both have the same dial up numbers, and I've removed all programs that aren't necessary.
