It appears that your Dell will support up to 2gB sticks in each slot, with a maximum of 8 gB being recognized.
If it's a 32 bit OS, you should see around 3.26 gB of RAM. If it's a 64 bit OS, then you'll see all 4 gB.
RAM testers that you download from the web test the RAM by running stress tests on it - and they're generally pretty accurate. There are some rare instances where the memory test will not discover a problem, and other rare instances where the memory test will indicate faulty memory when it's actually the slot that's faulty.
