U only have 1 stick right? It could be that the stick is bad... i know on the servers, it will say that it has detected an error and some of the memory is disabled. Sometimes you get onboard video sharing your memory but that is about half of the memory, so i don't think that is it. What is the model of the dell?
EDIT: I posted slow.... saw your response now...

Dells can be picky with ram. Probably a compatibility issue with that ram and the dell board
