audiofilter: How do you get one sound sample (http://www.sendspace.com/file/x8yljn) to sound like another (http://www.sendspace.com/file/fh6v9l) without rerecording?

I recorded a guitar part for a track I'm working on using a pretty crappy computer mic on my old Dell laptop and recorded another part with a condensor mic on my newer Powerbook. My Dell refuses to boot anymore and I've essentially given up trying to record the guitar parts on that mic. So I tried to use the computer mic to record on other computers but failed to match the sound of the original sample (I'm convinced that the soundcard on my Dell was somehow magical). Frustrated, I decided to simply record using my condensor mic and hoped to recreate the sound by means of filters and EQs but with no luck. Any tips on how to get the condensor mic clip to sound like the computer mic clip without rerecording? Perhaps there's a good VST that will magically solve my problem? My resources include Reason, Ableton Live, Garageband and Logic Express.
