Preferred Solution: Windows 7: Got BSOD everytime windows experience index is calculating

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey, I have a problem (though I think it is minor because my system recovers quite well from it after restarting). Basically, I overclocked my CPU to 4.19 gHz and everything is running smoothly (also got a Radeon 7770 HD graphics card) so I decided to redo my WEI score and close to the end of the CPU test the computer crashed and went to the blue screen of death before restarting again. Everything seems fine with my computer but I'm not sure what the problem might be.

My Specs (custom built desktop):
CPU: AMD Fx-8150 OC'ed to 4.19 gHz
Raden HD 7770 GPU
2 TB 7200 rpm seagate Barracuda Hard Drive.
8 gb ram @ 1133 MHz

Last year my mainboard fried on me, it was a MSI G31M-P21, I recently bought a MSI G41M-P28. I put the parts back together myself. For now the parts are as followed:

Mainboard: MSI G41M-P28
Prossessor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D 3.4GHz
RAM: 2GB
OS: Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
Graphic card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 220

When I started the pc after putting back the parts, I noticed the loading time was slower than before. After a little waiting for the computer to finish the start up stuffs, I installed the drivers for the new graphic card and drivers for the chipset n audio from the mainboard's cd. I tried to refresh the windows experience index, after the flash, when it tests my processor I think, I got the BSOD. I tried playing SMT imagine a few times after that, while in the game, after a little my pc freezes everytime. Also froze when I tried to change graphic settings in GTA IV, but only lags like when I am in the actual gameplay.

I googled:
"Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48
Locale ID: 1033"

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 124

BCP3: 00000000
BCP4: 00000000

and came around a similar thread on this site, followed steps from there but still same problem.

A:BSOD when I try to refresh my Windows experience index

It is much easier to find patterns, etc, when there are more than one crash.

We prefer you wait until you have at least two so that if one is corrupt the other probably wont be.






Quote:
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress


Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

I upgraded my hardware myself (new motherboard, CPU and RAM) and had to reinstall the operating system. I have a student copy of the upgrade version of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I had to slipstream Windows XP to get SP3 on it in order to use the Win7 upgrade, but I got it working alright.

A couple of times since I finished installing Win7 64-bit last night, I have had the computer lock up on me while in the middle of downloading stuff (Guild Wars 2 files, Windows critical updates, etc.) forcing me into performing a hard reboot. Also, I get the blue screen of death while running the Windows Experience Index. I am hoping they are related. That's where you fine people come in, if you would be so kind.

Here is the minidump data from WinDBG if it will help. Please let me know if you can help and if you need anything else from me. Thanks.

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.

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.

I did a clean install of Windows 8 Enterprise N, installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and tried to run WEI but it says: The Windows Experience Index for your system could not be computed. 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.

A:Windows experience index

Quote:
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.

Each hardware component receives an individual subscore. Your computer's base score is determined by the lowest subscore. For example, if the lowest subscore of an individual hardware component is 2.6, then the base score is 2.6. The base score is not an average of the combined subscores.

"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?

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.

Hi Folks,

After updating my Nvidia Display drivers, (which I believe was done correctly) I attempted to refresh WEI. It did not complete.
Reliability Monitor did not show error.
1, Where in 'Event Viewer' do I look to find the error.
2, Does WEI have an entry in 'Task Scheduler' ?

I would first check to see if all your drivers all installed correctly and are their most current versions...

If that doesn't work than I would do a repair install: Repair Install

If you do the latter...backup your data first (just in case)

Hi,

I have some questions in regards of the Windows 7 Experience Index.
Currently my system subscore is 5.2.

Processor : 7.1
Memory : 7.3
Graphics : 5.2
Gaming Graphic : 5.5
Hard Disk : 5.9

I'm using Alienware M15x, Windows Home Premium 64-bit, 8GB Ram, nVidia GTX 260M.
I remembered my Graphic and Gaming Graphic subscore used to be around 6.2. Why do I suddenly get a much lower subscore considering I did not make any changes to my system ?

A:Windows 7 Experience Index

It's buggy in my opinion. Mine's the same, but my specs are pretty good.

Don't worry about it.

I've tried to Google; but had no luck.

Can (will) a 64-bit processor being tested by the 64-bit version of Vista score higher than the same processor being tested by the 32-bit version of Vista?

A:Windows Experience Index - x64 vs. x32

Hello Rob,

A 64-bit CPU should score higher under the WEI CPU section while running a 64-bit Vista vs a 32-bit Vista.

hi i have recently tried to update my windows experience index but for some reason i get this error message:
"Cannot complete assessment
The assessment or other operation did not complete successfully. This is due to an error being reported from the operating system, driver or other component"
I have no idea why this is happening or what caused it.
I have run multiple registry and computer error repair programs which have picked nothing up-except registryfix 7 which has picked up 2 system service errors, this is what it says:

RegKey : HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlset\Services\hwdatacard
ValueName : ImagePath
Value : C:\Windows\system32\drivers\ewusbmdm.sys
The file (C:\Windows\system32\drivers\ewusbmdm.sys) Does not exist at the specified location.

and this is the second one:

RegKey : HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TfkbMon
ValueName : ImagePath
Value : C:\Windows\system32\drivers\tfkbMon.sys
The file (C:\Windows\system32\drivers\tfkbMon.sys) does not exist at the specifed location.
I dont know if these errors are anything to do with my problem but i cant seem to fix these to system service errors.

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,
Shawn

I have just recently helped a friend upgrade his computer to be Windows Vista capable.

One of the upgrades was a nVidia 9600GT graphics card.

Except now the problem is this, even with the newest nVidia drivers installed, the WEI will not score more than 1.0 for Graphics.

The odd thing is it shows the correct driver is installed, but the test is being run using "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter", as show below:


This happens even after a total clean re-install of Windows Vista Home Basic.

Any ideas how to fix this?

At the conclusion of Windows Experience it produces A report and you can print it but there is no option for saving it
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\
but there is no report there
The same sort of thing applies to the administrative logs in Event Viewer this log is a summary of the critical and error reports generated by the other logs which are stored at windows\system32\winevt\logs but again no reportis there it would also be nice to have a shortcut for administrative log

You can't save it as a file anywhere, but you can access it again from the System screen in the Control Panel, then click on Windows Experience Index, then 'View and print detailed...' under your score.

I ran successfully the Windows Experience Index (WEI) soon after installing Win 7 64 bit on a new computer. I tried running it again after making some hardware performance changes. It started to run, but gave a warning that I was on battery power and stopped? This is a desktop machine. If I go to the Power savings section I see what appears to be settings for a laptop?? It seems that my computer is seen as a laptop. How can I change that? Now I don't even have the option of running the program. I ran SFC and all is well, I deleted all the files in C:\windows\performance\winsat\datastore and that didn't fix it.
It just seems that my desktop is seen as a laptop?? Any way to change that, and where??

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.

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

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.

An irritating observation on my side ... and before I start, I know that the WEI is not a great benchmark but nevertheless -

I run a Core i7 4770K CPU overclocked at 4.3Ghz and 8 GB 1600 Mhz Corsair Dominator RAM on timings of 8-8-8-24 using the Asus Maximus Hero Motherboard's XMP profile. My RAM WEI = 7.8

My son's PC uses a much older MSI Z778 G43 motherboard with a mid range Core i5 CPU and 8 GB 1600Mhz Corsair Dominator Ram with timings 9-9-9-24. His RAM WEI = 7.9

Both PC's are on Windows 7.

I swapped his RAM into my PC and still got a WEI of 7.8 - so I guess his older cheaper MSI MB is much better at memory control than my Asus MB?

A:Ram speeds and Windows Experience Index

I doubt that it's a memory controller issue. It's probably just a quirk in Windows. A 0.1 score difference on a WEI is not significant in the real world.

I think if you ran a real benchmark on both machines, you would get different results. More like what you would expect to see.
