As long as you are sure the PC requires PC2100, the 2700 will work. If you'd like, you can give me the make and model of your Dell, and I can confirm if you are unsure.
Also, as a side note: Dells can be a little funny about memory sometimes, if for some reason it didn't work, it doesn't have to do with the speed you bought, but more that certain brand/type of memory just isn't compatible. Good Luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Probably because you are paying more attention.
It almost seems like its slower.
I'm assuming you upgraded from a total of 512mb to 1gb (2 x 512). You won't necessarily notice a speed increase per se', but where it will help out the most is when you have more than a couple programs opened at once, or multiple tabs open in a browser. Think of it like this...
512mb Total Ram = OS, background services, web browser (2 tabs open), and email client... anything opened after that will have to use "virtual memory" which is a small space on the hard drive designated to act as RAM (Random Access Memory) when your physical 512mb runs out... this process is much slower and this is when you start seeing the hour glass thinking and thinking and programs "not responding".
With 1gb of RAM... you can... OS, background services, web browser (2 tabs open), email client, and 2-3 more programs and/or many more tabs open at once in your browser. The general rule is, the more RAM the better.
