E5510 with Intel i3 - Low CPU and ram utilization


I have a Latitude e5510 that I recently bought from a dismantler.  I just finished installing 6gb ram, a WD 640gb HDD, and Windows 10.  I spent the afternoon downloading the hardware drivers from the Dell site but noticed the performance has been rather slow while downloading and installing the drivers.

After running the task manager, I realized that the CPU utilization hasn't gone over ~0.92 GHZ and only ~2.2gb out of the 6gb ram is being used.  I've tried running different programs, multiple instances of YouTube, etc, but nothing changes in the hardware utilization.

Here is a screencap of the Performance tab of the Task Manager while installing Office.  Notice the hardware utilization hasn't changed noticeably.

Has anyone experienced something similar?  I'm out of ideas on what to do.  I even went into the BIOS to make sure the speed settings were optimized.

Thank you for any help.
