Well, if you aren't a gamer, that probably won't be an issue at all. If you are a gamer, you will likely want to replace that onboard video with a dedicated video card and that problem will go away.

Personally, I don't worry much about the WEI. As long as the scores are in the ballpark and the PC performs as expected, it's just a number.

Do you have the latest driver installed? Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM

Note that your overall WEI will not go above 5.9 as that is the maximum with a conventional HDD. To go any higher, you require an SSD for the OS drive.

And that means what? Are you perhaps wondering why your graphics score is so low? or something else?

I'm confused as well to what the OP is worrying about. All the scores look good except for the video card, which, unless the OP is a gamer, won't be an issue. Juding by the name of the video card, I'm also guessing it is using the Windows driver, and not ones supplied by ATI.

On a side note, WEI is a horrible way of checking your system's performance.

Just for curiosity sake, I have noticed 0 change in my WEI scores with my EVGA 9800GTX+ regardless of which driver I use....The MS driver with Windows 7 or the Nvidia supplied drive.

danielb, the score is fine and what one would expect. As was said, if you decide to game, get another graphics card. But for everything else, you should be in great shape.

Agree. Here's an older laptop which runs Win 7 better than XP
