I'm now using a laptop to record and all is well except for electric guitar.

I'm using my laptop now to record. (I broke my PC for good.) It's an HP dv4000. I thought the processor would be good enough, but on playback after two bars of really distorted (punky) guitar the signal nearly flat-lines and modulates right into mud.
I'm using lineout or send from amp to mixer to laptop. Always below 0db. I've tried different amps.
Can this be corrected by using a pod? Cortex' line6 podxt sounded pretty good on Twist The Knife
but I've read bad reviews about pods in general.
Is it my computer, my set up, am I just screwed? Any ideas are greatly appreciated! Thanks.
