I read about a patch to fix this issue, I just did a quick search online for it this was what came up FIIRST Not sure if that helps i didnt read it all,,, thats as far as your memory issue goes but as for things being slow it could be the hard drive as TechX said it could be neurmorous other things as well, Maybe try running a program to help you get the max performance from your machine like tune up utilities 2010. Good luck
4GB RAM (3GB useable - why do I have 4 if only 3 can be...

You CPU is terrible. It does the job, but a D core is the lowest of the low for dual core technology. I would check the socket and see if you could upgrade to a better core. If you are looking to save some money you could eve go for a better core with a lower clock and still be better off.
As someone mentioned before you have a 32-bit OS it can only read 3GBs of RAM. Get a 64 bit OS and that will fix it.
I found the CPU clock thing a little weird when I started beta testing Windows 7 last year. That number in parentheses is the actual clock; the one that is not is the cores factory clock. I had to up the CAS on my RAM so it would clock to 1066, it was stuck at 800. My CPU was clocked at 2.33 now it is slightly higher at 2.34. It makes sense that Dell would underclock processors just a little for stability issues.
There is an explanation for everything, so just ask?
