Just bought this from an ebay computer merchant.
No modem, so I tried a usb modem I had...too slow.
Then I put an internal modem I had in the 2nd of 5
slots available. What I have now are the following.
1) Browser only shows part of the link I'm at, like
yahoo.com is in bold, the rest of the link grey (see
browser pic attached). This is the same..bold/grey,no
matter what site I'm at. This doesnt seem right to me.
2) Dont know of modem size (56k,etc) or how to check..
old one I've had a year or so. Online it pulls 45kbs,
which seems normal for dialup, but when I go to another
bookmarked site, I get "internet explored cant open page"
and have to refresh-f5 each time to open that page.
Overall, most pages load decently after refresh, but I've
had previous computers using same dialups that are much faster.
This pc also has preloaded avg free on it that is running
all the time.
3) Questions are...
Should I get rid of the avg program?
Should this modem be in a different slot?
Is there a faster speed internal modem I should purchase?
Any other suggestions appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
