Question about AMD Phenom X4 9750 Quad Core Processor HD9750XAGHBOX - 2.40GHz, 4MB Cache, 1800MHz FSB
There seems to be some sort of incompatibility issue between your motherboard and the Phenom, or maybe some option is not enabled in the motherboard bios that windows is only sensing half of the GHz, like if the processor is only running 2 cores instead of 4.
About the memory diference, that same problem is because the 64bit difference. Unless you have a 64bit XP you won't see the full 4GB. Windows XP is limited to 3 or 3.5GB of ram it can use, you are showing 2.75 maybe because some video board is integrated in your motherboard and it may be borrowing an extra 0.25GB from the 3GB that are usable under windows XP 32bit OS.
Please comment what motherboard you have, since the cpu alone can't be blamed nor configured.
