Dual Core CPU 2.0 showing only 2.2 in WEI

Lately running WEI index my dual core 2.0 cpu has started showing as 2.2 which is bringing down my WEI score, I am not sure what it was before.

Any Idea's ?

Thanks for your time

That's pretty low... do you have mobo chipset driver correctly installed? WHat are your system specs?

so not the overall wei but the processor itself is 2.2?

dual core should be average of 5 so something may be wrong.

have u noticed a performance decrease?

Hi thanks for the quick replies.
It's a Dell Inspiron 1720 Laptop. 4gig Crucial Ram,
It's been running fine upto now, not changed any drivers, I was running a dual Boot system, with 32bit Premium and 32bit Ultimate, in the Premium install it started showing 2.2 for cpu and in the Ultimate install it was something like 4.4.
I cant say I have noticed an degradation of performance.
I have since deleted the Ultimate install. But Wei is still showing 2.2.
in device manager it is showing 2 cpu's and in the perfomance tab it is showing 2 cpu's also.
Thanks again for your time.

Hi all! I am not computer illiterate. I have a question for you. I am switcing from an AMD dual core 2.4GHz to a Phenom 9750 Quad core. Changing out the heatsink and fan also. Can I just swap out the CPU's and restart Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Or do I have to do a complete reinstall of the same OS?...
