2.96 gig of ram is normal-that .4 is probably being used for system resources, nothing to be concerned about.
Most CPUs these days comes with scaling technology-i.e. if the computer doesnt need the full 2.2 ghz it will scale it back to a lower frequency to save power, and that is most likely the case here. To fix it go into your control panel, hardware and sound, power options, and create custom power plan. There should be an advanced power options, you should be able to set it to always keep at the full frequency there. Seems to me there should also be a BIOS setting, but Im not sure. What kind of computer is this, and what operating system?
