Hello,
the issue came when i was talking on skype, the connection was lost and the whole pc became very slow and unresponsive, i thought that the problem was on skype so i uninstalled it, but the issue appeared again when i opened 3D games [Too damn slow!!] I made everything possible to solve the issue but nothing happened :( 
i also checked that my rams were installed correctly, the pc says that i have 4GB of rams and the available physical memory is 2GB of rams..what is the meaning of that??

Run the Taskmgr to check your system status, like CPU usage, Remaining RAM, and identify which process is the largest system resource consumer.

Also, observer the HDD indicator,and take heed of what's running when the HDD indicator flash most frequently.

Hopes this will helpful to you.

Judging from your maps, seem your problem was caused by the over high CPU usage. The most probable reasons is excess temperatures, because the curve is so smooth even nearly like a line. If you are running something, the curve shouldn't like this.

Just try to making further test by downloading a 'Everest' and check the temperatures of your system components.

0.93 volt for CPU. That is low voltage. Should be somewhere in the 1.00 to 1.25 volt range. Did you accidentally change the power profile to power saving?

Sorry, I just found I misread your pictures. The curve is complete normal. Pyree is right, seems the problem due the "power save mode" because the CPU frequency will be limited in a range. Try to disable it and switch to "High Performance Mode". Perhaps your trouble will be solved immediately.

When is the last time you cleaned up the system? ie: temp files, cache, etc? And defragged?

means 4GB RAM is installed and 2GB are available. Between Windows and programs that sounds right. FYI, Virtual memory is installed RAM + pagefile.
