Windows 7: Windows Experience Score for a SSD only 5.9

Windows Experience Score for a SSD only 5.9

Hello everyone

I have been having issues with my Laptop lately and the other day my SSD Windows Experience Score was 7.1... today it is only 5.9 and googling around this is usual for a spinner.

I have run the Lenovo system check and everything passes.

I have installed 12GB of Ram but I often have to remove 2 x 2GB sticks as it reads I have only 6GB in both the Bios and Windows info.

I have been having Kernel-Power (41) 63 for a few weeks when rendering it just shuts down and tries to restart sometimes stuck in a loop as it appears to me to be a heat issue maybe. I have monitored both the CPU and GPU temps and nothing really out of the ordinary...

So some of your insights or further checks I should make would be welcome
Thanks

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
You might use cpu-z and post the Mainboard section with a screen shot,
CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID

All mother boards have restriction for how much ram per slot it can handle possibly you went over ?
My Acer has a 2gb per slot limit so I can only use 4x2gb = 8gb's of ram as an example.

Did you clean install onto the new ssd ?
You might be out of align but you can try Free mini tool and align all partitions by selecting the disk or select each partition or a single partition and just align it

My two cents worth I have two well specified machines now ie an i7 8GB 1600 RAM Samsung 850 EVO's etc etc but the thing that pulls them up and I have found in general is the graphics this is still so with the good machines even though they have on board NVidia GPU's.
So what has exactly turned the wick down?? and 7.1 appears to be extremely good for a spinner - I stand to be corrected of course.

Hi
Thanks for your reply..
The SSD is not a new install and has been fine and had a good score up until today.... I will check my Power settings as I could have the performance of it lower maybe..

Regarding the RAM, like I mentioned I often have to remove the 2 x 2GB sticks and reseat them and the Bios and Windows Recognises 12GB... Just do not understand why it should go off...
Also another point on the RAM i did not mention is that at the moment it is reading 6GB but when I remove 2 x 2GB it then read 8GB which is correct as 2 x 4GB sticks are installed under the keyboard.. So it's like one channel is off 1 x 4GB and 1 x 2GB... the plot thickens...

Hi,
Yea I believe you might be limited to 8gb's
Have you tried 4x2gb's
Although 2x4gb's might be the same as long as you're in the same color slots as using all at 4x2gb's

According to the Specs it is 16GB:

Memory
PC3-8500 Non-Parity (NP) Double Data Rate Three (DDR3) Technology
Four SO-DIMM Slots
The use of 1066 MHz SO DIMM memory is recommended for this system.
1 GB, 2GB, or 4GB memory
Supports up to 16GB maximum memory


It clearly is either faulty RAM, Motherboard, or something else.

12GB I often have available but recently this drop off and seating I have to do to get it back.

Hi,
Wonder why the frequency's are different must not be matching ram :/
I'd remove 3 & 4 and buy a couple more like 1 & 2.

Don't know if it is of any consequence but the voltages are different too.

With all installed use this to check very detailed info on those figures.
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
IE
12v = 11.4v min to 12.6max
5v = 4.75v min 5.25v max
3.3v = 3.135v min to 3.465v max
See this for the rail voltage info
PSUs 101: A Detailed Look Into Power Supplies (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.
Use PART B: to open up the RAM and it would be interesting (to me) to see what the PSU is doing too.
