$ cat /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:      2051868 kB

will tell you what Linux is actually seeing and using.  But lack of
memory can only be the problem if it is falling back to swap, so your
HDD is always going.

Perhaps it is more likely cpuspeed has slowed the processor down due to
it being mostly idle?  Use

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

and see what speed it reported there after the machine is idle for some
time.
