Hello Byamba, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing OPTION ONE in the tutorial below may be able to restore your "High Performance" power plan.

Power Plan - Restore Default Settings

Your image link for the WEI score issue does not work. You might see if resetting WEI may be able to help for now.

Windows Experience Index - Reset

Hope this helps,
