First, you may need to insure you are using all the latest drivers
for your machine.. Manufacturers tweak their drivers with each release of Windows, and itís possible one of your PCís parts is still using a beta driver
. When a newer driver arrives thatís optimized for Windows 7, your PC might earn a higher score.
Second, the fact that your machine is a laptop, may contribute to the lower score..Your PC may be top-of-the line, but itís a laptop, and laptops can never compete with top-of-the-line PCs. Todayís more powerful desktop PCs might have nudged your laptop out of the top ranks and into a slightly lower ranking.
Microsoft designed the experience index to change over time as new hardware gets released. What was ranked high before in Vista, may not retain the same rating in 7. I would not necessarily use this as a sign your machine is running slower in 7. How does the OS feel to you? On all of the older laptops I have installed 7 on, I noticed a distinct performance improvement, especially in the area of just general navigation. The OS has proved to be far more snappy then it's predecessor.. Hope this helps..
Thank you for your reply.
Yes everything you said was right.
But As i told you my configuration
It was kinda eqivelent to my friends laptop which is
Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz 2mb L2 Cache
2GB RAM DDR II
256MB Nvidia 8400MGS
160GB HDD 7400PRM
This laptop has a base score of 5.2 and mine is 3.9
In Vista i had base score of 4.0 and this laptop had 3.9.
So why the performance drop?
I cant seem to understand
My Passmark score for Vista was 540 and in 7 it is 460.
I compared both my passmark scores and saw that my 2D Graphics score in Vista was 360 and in 7 is dropped down to 155.
Which is related to Processor (2D Graphics)
So, I downloaded the set of drivers offered by the HP site downloaded them and installed them.
Refreshed the score still no change.
I think there is some problem, Where i cant seem to figure out :|
