Problem with SSD / Windows Experience Index

I recently purchased a new Motherboard, ram, processor and CPU. I kept the same drives. I used to have a MSI p35 platinum MoBo, with a dual core cpu. It had the same exact operating system on it (Win 7 x64 pro). When i put in the disc that came with the new Gigabyte p55 motherboard I installed drivers that I thought were important while trying to avoid most of it. I then ran windows experience index, it worked. I then turned sata to AHCI in the bios (boosted my SSD score before). I reran the assessment. Ever since then I have never successfully completed the test. It errors at the end (Around the disk performance). I notice my Random 4K writes are slower than they were originally. I have reset the BIOS to default, same problem. I attempted to download a new intel INF from gigabytes website but it did not solve my problem.

I noticed that some people have their anti-virus conflict with this but I do not run any sort of anti-anything software.

I think it is AHCI / SSD / DRIVER related because my hard drive score was 7.7 (tested yesterday) on my old cpu. I remember before it tested around 7.3 before I switched it to AHCI.

I tried to put as much info as possible in the pictures but if you need more I am sure i can get it.

Major problems:
1. Cant complete Windows Experience Index Test
2. SSD seems to not be running properly

Edit: Running the test through an elevated command prompt (winsat formal) didnt help

Problem Solved. I system restored, and did not install any of the new drivers. The test completes now. The 15 still seems low for random 4k.
