You could also go to Dell's website, key in your service tag number and find out everything about the PC when it was shipped

Everest should tell you what's installed. Under motherboard click on SPD.

I've seen those kind of differences also, but Everest will tell him what he has installed.

2100 is rarely sold now.

Here's Crucial's note for the 2400:
Quote:
Important information about your system
PC3200 is listed as an option for this system and will either operate at 266MHz or 333MHz depending on the FSB setting. The system is not capable of operating with an 800MHz FSB so it cannot operate the PC3200 at 400MHz.
