HP Mini 311-1037 runs slow and can't handle Skype


I received my HP Mini 311-1037 2 days ago and it runs terrible to say the least. It can't run Skype video even if I connect my Cable Internet at home. It is very slow considering it has 2Gb of Ram and a 1.6 Intel Atom processor.


My sister has a dell mini with similar specs and it runs Skype pefectly.


Does anyone know if I received a dud or if this machine just not powerful enough?
