When I log onto aol with the desk top the modem (BT voyager 100)shuts off after logging on. I spoke to AOL and they said it was the usb couldn't cope with the power drain however when i went on to the BT website the computer is well within the specifications laid down. Please help. the motherboard is an ASUS A7V-E.
