Preferred Solution: Fix Low Hard Drive Windows Experience Index Score in Windows 7

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.)

Hi, I have a SSD and a HDD. What happened today is that I changed the SATA ports my SSD and HDD were plugged into.

P67A-GD65 SATA Performance | bit-tech.net

Basically I plugged my drives into the Marvel controller on my mobo by mistake as my manual did not say which port was which. I only realised the performance difference after reading the above article (the Intel P67 ports are faster on my mobo). So i open up my pc and switch the ports they are plugged into. (i changed from sata7_8 to sata 1_2, both 6gbps)

HD Tune Pro does register some performance increase from changing the SATA ports. However, the WEI index now says my Hard Disk score is 5.9. It was before on 7.7.

I suspect it's reading the HDD as my primary hard disk? because there's no way my SSD is broken. it doesn't feel funny and HD Tune Pro sees no errors and some performance increase.

A:Windows Experience Index - Hard Drive score totally incorrect

Honestly, if the system is running fine, it isnt worth the effort it took to type in your entire post. WEI is not a benchmarking tool and shouldn't be treated as such. It is utterly and completely useless. I haven't cared about the my score the entire time Windows 7 has been out, but in Vista, I could occasionally get a different score just by refreshing the tool a few times. I'd completely ignore it.

HD Tune Pro is a better indication, and it is showing a difference, going by your post, so that's all you should worry about. I have a Gigabyte board nearly identical to yours, and considering the chipset bug, you should be using the first two ports...which you are now. They are unaffected.

So my base score is 5.1 - the score comes from Graphics. I'm wondering why its so low. My Gaming graphics is rated 6.2. I know I have a fairly good graphics card - Ati Radeon HD 5450 with 1GB ram.

What does this score of 5.1 mean? What kind of limitations might I have, where does that score come from, and is it possible to improve?

So earlier my computer crashed and instantly went to blue screen then when it rebooted it went into chkdsk and fixed all the problems etc..
Then I noticed it is stuck in Windows classic mode and will not go into Aero. I did some research and had to update my graphics card driver but nothing. Then I looked at my WPI and realized they were unrated.
When I click "Rate This Computer" nothing happens.
I have tried many things to try and fix this issue including going into command prompt and typing in winsat formal but I get "Unsupported 16-bit Application The program or feature \C:\Windows\System32\WinSat.exe cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of windows."
I've also noticed the system is running slower than normal and some basic programs aren't working and some .DLL errors.
I think I may have to do fresh install of Windows 7 but don't feel like doing that. Any help would be great, thanks in advance.

I am getting a 3.0 for this index. I have a RAID 1 (dual 320 GB 7200RPM 16MB cache Segate drive's) setup. I saw a post about disabling write-caching and re-running. When I do I get a score of 5.8. Is this a real score with it on? Write-cache is supposed to improve performance, why would it lower my score unless it is a flaw in the test. Not a major concern, but I thought I might ask for so input from people mote in the know.

Thanks!

So, for the past few days my pc has been running slower compared to normal and I've had no ideia why. Today, I went into Performance Information and Tools and, to my surprise, it said new hardware had been detected (I have never changed my pc's hardware) and that I should run the Windows Experience Index evaluation again (something I sometimes do and that has kept the same scores ever since buying the pc). To my surprise, my RAM score fell from the previous score of 7.3 to 5.5!

Does anyone know what might be behind this? I suppose whatever is causing this is also the reason my pc has been slower lately.

Any help would be highly appreciated

Do you know that there are extremely few people worldwide having achieved the perfect 7.9 Windows Experience Index score in Windows 7?

Well, Microsoft does. But if fact, it is possible to build a monster machine capable of reaching the top WEI score of 7.9 in Windows 7 RTM.

According to the Redmond company, putting together a hardware combination to hit 7.9 in Windows 7 becomes more and more feasible, especially as computer components evolve and get cheaper.

?As of July 2010, few people own 7.9-ranked computers. There are only a handful listed on WEI Share, awebsite where people compare their index scores,? the Redmond company noted.

?But it?s a goal that will grow more attainable as more advanced computer components become the norm.?

Microsoft Help currently features an article titled: ?Earning the top Windows Experience Index score.?

The software giant is essentially lending a helping hand to power PC users that are simply not content with anything inferior to the perfect WEI 7.9 score.

The God Machine

The chase for the Windows 7 7.9 WEI score began in early January 2010, just after Microsoft released the first Beta development milestone of Windows Vista?s successor.

To this date people are finding the ?Hardware Configuration for the Perfect 7.9 Windows 7 Score? article I wrote at the start of the year and leaving comments. Some of them have actually even earned bragging rights.

also on a side question in control panel>system it shows processor being 4.7hz but it is oc to 5.1 and with turbo on 5.4 ghz. how come windows does not show the true processor speed as stated in bios?

thanks

A:windows experience index lowered graphic score but have same gpu?

The Windows Experience Index doesn't mean very much. There have been cases where the numbers differ on identical systems. The exact method used to calculate the numbers has never been documented.

The CPU speed shown in the control panel is the nominal speed rating read from the CPU itself. This cannot be changed and has nothing to do with the actual clock rate of the CPU. With most modern CPUs the actual clock rate will vary according to need.

I'm curious to see what kind of numbers people have gotten for the primary hard disk data transfer rate. Under Vista I scored 5.9 on all tests as it was as high as the numbers would go.

After a clean install of Win7 Ultimate, I was quite surprised to find my primary hard disk score remained at a 5.9. My boot drive is made up of 2 10,000RPM cheetah SATA drives in a RAID stripe (RAID0). I'm wondering if this test is still maxed out at 5.9. If you got higher than 5.9, what kind of drive are you using? I'm sure SSD's score higher.

Cheers.

Hi all,

I have a high end PC. Intel Core i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67ghz (dual core) with 8GB DDR3 running Win7 x64. My disk is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1TB 7200 rpm drive (ST31000333AS) with 32MB cache connected using SATA 3Gb/s. Specs here: ST31000333AS Barracuda 7200.11 SATA 3Gb/s 1-TB Hard Drive | Seagate

My Windows Experience Index is 7.5 for all categories except for this primary disk drive. The drive only scores 5.9. Considering I think this is a fairly high end system with lots of memory and the cpu power, it seems very odd to me that the drive would score so low - especially compared to the 7.5 scores across the board in the other categories.

Are there any known performance issues with this drive? Or is this score not surprising? Any tips or tricks I can use to speed up the drive and/or troubleshoot this some more to better understand what's slowing it down?

Thanks!

A couple days ago, I noticed that my laptop was not yet rated with the windows experience index, so I plugged the laptop in to ac power, set the power plan to High Performance, and ran the rating. However, it failed at 99% complete with a weird hard drive read error. I've attached a couple of pictures of me re-running the test again, with the same result:

During test:


Error message:

Is there a way to increase the max WEI score to something higher than 5.9 in Vista? I don't mean the xml file hack where you can change the number for each category to anything you want, but rather an increase on the maximum limit (currently 5.9) that the WEI can display. Maybe change it to something around Win7's level? Is this possible?

I'm currently running Vista SP1 (32-bit) on a Dell XPS M1530 laptop which I bought in May 2008. The hard drive has crashed twice and been replaced twice (that's not what I'm coming to ask about, but it could be relevant). My video card is an NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT. Between that and 4 GB RAM, I can run most new games at nearly-maximum performance, including Fallout 3 and Dawn of War 2; I have a very graphically capable computer.

I have checked my Windows Experience Index score several times since my purchase (though not since the most recent hard drive crash in november), and all of my scores have been above 5.0. Today, I checked again and found that my Graphics and Gaming Graphics scores were very, very low: 2.5 and 3.6 respectively. All of my other scores are still above 5.0.

I checked the specifics, and it tells me

Display adapter type NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
Total available graphics memory 1791 MB
Dedicated graphics memory 256 MB
Dedicated system memory 0 MB
Shared system memory 1535 MB
Display adapter driver version 7.15.11.7644
Primary monitor resolution 1920x1200
DirectX version DirectX 10

According to light research, these numbers all seem to be quite good. So why is my score so low? And more importantly, why did it drop?

A:Decreased Experience Index Graphics Score

graphics drivers can affect the score, has anything changed with those?

another thing is windows update - is it set to automatically download and install updates? if so thats probably what caused it.

Currently there's no Experience Index established. So, I click "Rate this computer" and it starts to do so. However, it doesn't finish, showing this in a dialog box:

The assessment or other operation did not complete successfully. This is
due to an error being reported from the operating system, driver, or other

VPC uses virtual hardware -- which includes RAM, and its own drivers for everything, right? So, logically, it should be able to rate itself based on its own stuff...

This is a normal score for a spinning disk. For anything better you need either a Raid setup with 15.000RPM spinning disks or an SSD. It is the access time and the data transfer rate that determines the rating, not the capacity. Here is a performance comparison of a spinning disk and an SSD. Watch especially the difference in access time.

Hi,

About 2 months ago I purchased my first laptop; a Compaq A916NR. Today I learned about the Windows Experience Score from Vista for Dummies. My scores are...

Processor: 4.7
Memory (RAM): 4.3
Graphics: 2.0
Gaming Graphics: 3.3
Primary Hard Disk: 4.9

I don't know if these numbers mean anything at all, but should I be concerned about the 2.0 for Graphics? I've only used Aero once, and I didn't care for it so I probably won't again, but it worked well when I did.

Also, I've installed and played RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 and The Sims 2 Nightlife on this computer and they loaded and looked better than my other computer; a Windows MCE '05 Compaq desktop.

So, I guess I might just be worrying needlessly, but is there any reason for concern?

Any answers or suggestions would be appreciated!

Everything working fine, gameplay acceptable etc.

What's puzzling me is that if I use Vista's own windows drivers, that score goes up to 4.6.......but gameplay is unacceptable.
That just does not make sense.

Anyone got any ideas on this.

Hello all,
I just installed Windows 7 (build 7022) and my friend told me about this forum. So i had a look and this forum became quite handy, but lets get to the point

Windows 7 has a kind of benchmark of your system just like Vista. Of course I was wondering about what score my system would have on Windows 7. So I benchmarked and all scores were quite the same, except for my harddisk. on vista i had a score of 5.7 and on Windows 7 a score of 3.0, which I think is strange.

I currently (And for almost 2 years now) own an ATI Radeon HD2600XT 256mb DDR3, and Windows Experience Evaluation gives it 6,4 score in 3D rendering (Or Gaming Graphics).

What is your score? (Specify Video Card)

PS: My W7 install is in spanish so I'm not quite sure how the english translation really is, if you could enlight me I will change the topic.
 

A:Windows 7 Experience Evaluation 3D performance score

Well, this is strange, but I own an Nvidia GTX 260 core 216 SC edition which I OC'd to 720 Mhz core, 1193 Mhz VRAM, 1552 Mhz Shader clock, and I get the same score on W7 RC, ie. 6.4

I might be CPU bottle-necked though: AMD Athlon 64 x2 4400+ (OC'd to 2.6GHz) - CPU score: 5.5

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.

Specs:
Intel Pentium 4 @ 3.0GHz
3GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT (Catalyst Version 8.2)
Windows Vista

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 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' ?

A:Windows Experience Index.

Here is one SF thread i found about this.
It has links to more threads...
Maybe you can find something in here to help...

I have GTX 260 and Windows 7 home 64 b, and Windows Experience Index is just 2.0.
It's because of Gaming graphics is 2.0.
All other indexes:
Processor 7.5
Memory 7.5
Graphics 5.9
Primary hard disk 5.9

Anyone have an idea why Gaming graphics is so low?
How to increase this index to any higher value?

P.S.
Also have some problems with PC. Here is the tread's link:

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??
Thanks for any help.

Hello and welcome to the forums.
I would expect you have onboard graphics of not a very powerful type. It would be easier to make any helpful suggestions if you fill in your full system spec.

Could someone help me......

Thanks....
(Sorry for my english)

A:Windows Experience Index can't run

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 guys i have just installed Windows 7 and i have a problem with the Windows Experience Index when i run the program all i get is the error in the screen shot.
Has anybody got any idea what the problem is please

I do have a problem with my Gefore Display drive not working with Windows 7 and i am just using the basic windows VGA driver. as Gefore seem to be unable to supply a driver that works
Could this be the problem

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.

Welcome to seven forums blairseven: The best score on the index I think is 7.9. And the program has been discussed several times and isn't the best of programs for measuring your graphics ability. As we say it is to be taken with a grain of salt. Fabe

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.
