Is the power plan perhaps not on High Performance? I usually see WEIs drop when it's rated on different power plans on laptops.

Thanks for the help guys. I had stealth mode turned on and off which caused the problems. As there was no stealth mode indication i was unable to find the root of problem. Now its all done and dusted

THANKS for all the replies.!!

No related to gaming but when you rate a computer using WEI, windows automatically uses the "High Performance" power plan and switches back to the last selected plan when the rating has completed.
