"...in a different machine"

This is probably the difference. The other machine probably had a better 
power supply, with cleaner power, or a better shielded or better laid 
out motherboard that didn't generate as much radio frequency noise. The 
simplest check, and cheapest unless you have a specialized box, is to 
replace the PS with a good quality unit, not a cheap knockoff that comes 
with a $30 case.

I haven't smoked for 3 months, 4 days and 20 hours, saving $435.94 and 
not smoking 2,906.28 cigarettes.
