I've updated my profile so you can see that I'm from Bilbao, Spain. And although the Windows 7 Beta isn't available in Spanish, it's possible to adapt the Regional and Language Options in the Control Panel.

In the non-english-world the decimal point is comma and the comma is the decimal point, so that's why you see 5,7 instead of 5.7 as the final score.

BTW this is the panel where you can change this settings

yes the spanish versions have this instead....

so now by download the the chipset drivers and manually updating them give you a higher score???

i am now thinking this is a more universal solution to those that are using non Nforce chipsets.....

your evga uses a Nforce 700 chipset....

people having intel chipsets and such dont have that option (which is why i specified non Nforce chipsets)

I agree with you. People with Intel Chipsets should try this method and they could get higher scores. It's kind of a manual procedure - you cannot install the INF Updater with the installer - but it's worth every minute invested because the system run smoother and faster.

I think it happens when you change decimal symbol from . to , in regional options.
