5.9 is fast for a standard hard drive. Only way to increase that score is to install a new solid state HD and put the OS on it. it will score in the 7's and increase boot time by @10 seconds.
i swore i was inthe low 7,s but maybe i was looking at the other ratings. what is a solid state HD? If i was looking at the right thing my hd is a hitachi hdt 721010sla360 ata. 1tb HDD. came stock in gateway dx4300-03 computer.
thank you for the info seems like everybody out there these days [especially gateway] wants $ for any help.
