Windows Experience Index

Q: Windows Experience Index

Let's see what vista is giving your system:



The Windows Experience Index measures the capability of your computer's hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your computer will perform better and faster than a computer with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.Click to expand...

Open Performance Information and Tools by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Performance Information and Tools.
Mine:

Click to Maximize

As you can see, I am running the Japanese version of Vista. The categories are (from top to bottom)

Processor
Ram
Graphics (desktop)
Graphics (gaming)
Primary Hard disk

It gives you an individual score for each category, then your main score is whatever was the lowest of all your categories. My lowest was my CPU score, so my main score equals my CPU score.

My system:
Core 2 Duo 6600
Evga 680i
2Gb Corsair XMS2
7950GT 512mb graphics

Also please note what version of vista you are running, as they have made major changes since the beta versions. Mine is on RC1.

Note: the purpose of this thread is not to compare our systems, but an evaluation of this new "index" system itself. Is it a good system or not.

Microsoft seems to want to simplify things by giving you an easy number. Then when you go to buy software, it will tell you what number your system needs to be in order to run the new software. I am sceptical, mainly of the way they choose your LOWEST score and assign that as your overall system score. So if you have a E6700 cpu, 2 Gigs of XMS2 ram but a low end graphics card, you are going to get a very low index score. Your high end parts mean NOTHING to your system's overall index. Doesn't make sense to me.

Regards to you all

A:Windows Experience Index

I think that a repair install (upgrade) would be your best bet. In lieu of that approach, just reinstall, again. This should not be a problem, since you have just reinstalled.

My best advice, however, after you are up and running, have programs installed and activate, make a system image and put it in a safe place. In that way you will never have to come here again, with a similar problem.

What I would like to do is have is a short cut to access the report or a way of saving it
After running the index the logs are stored at Windows\performance\winsat\data store\

A:windows experience index went down

Hello xbabeoo,

This depends on which hardware subscore dropped.

Most likely, it's due to an updated driver for that item (ex: graphics). Drivers can cause the WEI score for that item to go up and down a tiny bit since the drivers can affect their performance.

Hope this helps some,

Everytime when I try to run the Windows Experience Index, it gets to Windows Media Assessment and then my monitor turns blank and the light keeps blinking. I can't do anything besides restart the computer. I have updated everything from my video card to my BIOS, yet it still does this. I have all the codecs from K-Lite Codec Pack. For some strange reason it does the same thing when I run any of the Orange Box games, but other games like WoW, The Sims 2, Kane and Lynch run flawlessly. It even does this sometimes when I watch any videos in Internet Explorer besides flash-based players. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

I've made a couple of changes over the time I've had Vista installed on my computer, and just for fun, I was going to re-run the Windows Experience Index test. I went to the Performance Information and Tools section, and there is nothing there. All it says is

"Rate and improve your computer's performance

None of that is a link to anything else. I didn't really think to look until after this, but it now says my WEI is unrated. Its obviously nothing major that is killing my computer, but its still strange. Any advice on how to fix this? Possibly force Windows to run the test through the run command?

Cannot complete the requested assessment. This system does not have the necessary multi-media support to run the requested assessment.

I have disabled KIS and it still doesn't work. I am aware that Win 8 Enterprise N comes without WMP, but is this the reason why WEI won't run? Also, is WEI necessary and does running or not running affect system performance?

My guess (and that's all it is) is that it is a driver-related problem.

Make sure all drivers are the latest available, especially those for graphics and sound.

Also install a third-party media player (I like K-Lite, or VLC is good). I've never used
an 'N' version, but the lack of a media player could be an issue with WEI, I don't know.

And no, it isn't necessary to run WEI, nor does it have any effect on performance.
Hope this helps.

After I installed Vista 64 bit with 2x1gb of rams, the Window Experience Index was 5.7 which is determined the lowest factor, in this case, the computing speed. The question is why I later installed another 2x1gb rams which makes the total of 4gb would dropped the index to 5.6? More ram = slow????
 

A:What's up with the Windows Experience index!

Many systems relax memory timings in order to run with 4-sticks. This is very common of Intel chipset motherboards.

Moreover, memory will run at the speed of your slowest memory. You might want to download and run CPU-Z and have a look at the memory timings for all four slots on it's memory tab. This will tell you what SPD rating your sticks are and if you're now running at higher latency/slower speeds since adding the two new sticks.

Look in the Administrative view of Event Viewer at Computer>Manage for related errors. Resolve errors by googling.

A quick run of "sfc /scannow" will reassure that all OS files are intact and uncorrupted.

A last resort would be to run the installer from the desktop to do a Repair Install which in Win7 is an in-place Upgrade over itself.

Hello Vaporlockv2 Welcome to the Seven Forums!

The WEI in actuality can be seen as a joke played on the user by MS since it is far from an accurate system diagnostic and benchmarking utility! With the board maxed out here at 16gb it still only shows 7.5 out of the supposedly highest 7.9.

The same for the cpu. All hardwares in perfect working and still never reaching the highest on the WEI chart shows what? An estimated but not actual value.

Forgive me if this is in the wrong section or if it has been covered before.

I've downloaded the latest ati drivers, but not the ones for my motherboard from their site. I'll go abouts doing that when I get home.

I know i could just avoid doing a index rating, but it'll just bug me until it gets done.

RELEVANCY SCORE 69.6

Like most PC users, every so often, I re assess my Windows Experience Index. The current index is 5.9 but it's been that for some time now.
Every other part of the Windows Experience check goes ahead without a hitch. It's only the very last part when the performance of the CPU is supposed to be measured that I get the massage that the CPU can't be checked.
What could have happened?
My CPU is a dual Core Intel and in every other respect it works fine.
Can anyone make some suggestions?

RELEVANCY SCORE 69.6

Hello,

I have a weird issue with the Windows Experience Index, that when I try to re-index, it gets to the part about "Assessing CPU Performance", then the lights on the keyboard disappear, the mouse will stop working and the system freezes. I also don't here the HD spinning. I can open and close the disk drives, and can hear the fan running. I normally have to reboot after

This is a family desktop that I don't use much, because i have a laptop, other family members have said that these symptoms had occurred when i had XP installed to. I thought by installing vista it would stop but it occurs again.

I though maybe it was NIS 2007 conflicting, so i disabled and same thing.

I think out of 5 times running it, it only worked once.

Desktop System:
Dimension 8300
2GB Ram
Nvidia Geforce 7600GT
Vista Home Premium

Just wanted some thoughts on what might be the issue, thank you!

Just bought a new laptop.

It came with a 750 GB 5400 RPM drive so I'm currently creating recovery media so I can quickly copy everything to a SATA III SSD I bought which will serve as the OS drive afterwards. As such I haven't installed any games yet to find out whether there's an actual issue, or if it's just WEI being weird, but I ran WEI while burning the recovery discs and realized something rather odd:

CPU: 7.9
RAM: 7.9
Graphics: 5.9
Gaming Graphics: 6.9
Hard Drive: 5.9

Specifically, that gaming graphics score seems, far, far, too low.

I was expecting something in the 8.0-8.5 range.

I decided to ask a friend of mine who has a NVIDIA 525m what his score was, and his is 6.8. My laptop has a NVIDIA GTX 770M, there's no way it should score only marginally higher than a 525m (the 525m scores roughly 740 on 3dmark11, a 770m should score over 5,000).

As such I can only assume it's using the Intel HD 4600 for the benchmark and not the 770m.

Is this a common issue with laptops when running WEI, or does this likely mean that there's a driver error (or faulty hardware) and that the 770m won't be used when gaming either?

I'd have expected that "graphics" score would be based off the 4600 HD, but that "gaming graphics" should use a discrete card if available.

A:Windows 8 Experience Index Oddness

You might want to try the following:

Download Passmark Benchmarking Software, run the benckmarks, and compare them with others running the exact same laptop (whatever that is) and/or you can tailor a search for unique graphic card results if you wish (free 30 day full trial):

PassMark product listing - Diagnostic and test software for computers

I think that would be a much better way to test your laptop; however, there are some WEI compare sites out there but good luck finding a match for your laptop. Give Passmark a shot and see if those results make you feel any better. Good luck.

Ok just finished a new build, and found the WIN7 Windows Experience Index rating. I ran it and come up with 5.9 which is limited by the lowest score of my HDD. The Processor Memory, and graphics = 7.3

I am rather suprized my HDD is so much lower as it is the latest Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB model WD1001FALS 1TB. What can I do to improve the performance of the HDD?

Unless you install a solid state drive you wont get any better mate.
