Try programs like everest. And try benchmarking the processor and compare the results with other who have the same CPU. I don't think that there is a big problem here because BIOS should be always right.

Well, I dunno about that speed for the cpu... but maybe you have intergrated video. That takes up some of the ram. Hence, the name, integrated. A seperate video card woul free up your ram. Or another stick of 512mb.

Running at 1.8 could be because 'cool and quiet' utility slows it automatically to run smoother, or a jumper on the motherboard should be set...
