Windows 7: Windows 7 Experience Index

Windows 7 Experience Index

Hi,

I have some questions in regards of the Windows 7 Experience Index.
Currently my system subscore is 5.2.

Processor : 7.1
Memory : 7.3
Graphics : 5.2
Gaming Graphic : 5.5
Hard Disk : 5.9

I'm using Alienware M15x, Windows Home Premium 64-bit, 8GB Ram, nVidia GTX 260M.
I remembered my Graphic and Gaming Graphic subscore used to be around 6.2. Why do I suddenly get a much lower subscore considering I did not make any changes to my system ?

It's buggy in my opinion. Mine's the same, but my specs are pretty good.

Don't worry about it.

Some times when you get an updated gpu driver it will lower the score. Why? Who knows....I just know it happens. Try updating driver and then rerun the WEI app.

Yeah it tends to happen a fair bit. My hard drive score dropped from 5.9 to 5.8, but I doubt that means anything. At least I hope it doesn't. Just find it weird since it's a Raptor, it shouldn't be below 5.9 at any point.

I believe the score is based off usage, sometimes when playing a game, well, always I mean, the usage of resources shoots up. Maybe that's why the score is suffering, or simply when multitasking.

You may need to roll back to a previous graphics driver. Check in windows update to see it it updated the nVidia driver. There have been many reports of reduced WEi scores with the latest nVidia drivers, myself included.

Thank you for all your answers.
I just found it weird, because I did nothing to my system...except maybe if because Windows update my driver.
