The gaming graphics score is based on the primary graphics adapter. If this system has linked or multiple graphics adapters, some software applications may see additional performance benefits.
Caution: Based on the results of the WinSAT Disk assessment, your system drive may have slower response times under some workloads. Performance results will depend on the specific applications used and the amount of memory available. If your experience is satisfactory, no action is needed.





windows update breaks the install so fast its not funny as in the first update when this computer was first brought broke windows 7 completely (the system would not boot in anything but safe mode)

now the system has been reset more then a dozen times by ten techie's and twice by me and now sits with windows 7 oem install (no updates at all not even the core updates - E.G. dot net 4.0)

the system has issues with updates and cant seem to fix them and no matter how many people try it will not accept updates and the pc is completely sound in every way

Samsung has proven that there is nothing wrong with the system and there is no extra software installed that would be an issue (doesn't even have software installed at the moment as that also breaks windows 7)

can someone please explain why the system will not accept any updates of any form nor an updated/slipstreamed windows disk


it is currently locked to safe mode only with lan/wifi turned on via a system hack as some (word I cant use here) installed xna framework to play a steam game (can not remember witch one)
