A 3000 V100 is slower than a 3000 N100; what's wrong?

Hello everybody

 

My wife got a 3000 V100 (specs below). She didn't like the performance of Vista. I installed XP pro (the one i had, not the downgrade disk that leonovo sells; downloaded all drivers and installed them). Then i noticed my laptop (3000 N100; specs given below) which also runs XP pro, is considerably faster: I read a core 2 duo should be about 30% faster than a core duo, but mine (n100) boots in about 1 or 2 minutes and hers (v100) in 4 or 5 minutes (everything else is as slow).

 

Is it possible that one of v100 cores doesn't work, perhaps because I missed installing a driver?

 

Thanks in advance.

Any idea is appreciated! I got no answer so far and still clueless.
