Why didn't SSD improve WEI rating?

I replaced my 7200 rpm 320gig laptop drive today for a kingston 120 gig SSD but yet my WEI drive rating remained the same at 5.9 after I updated the rating. I know it should definately be higher than that, so I'm wondering if the low rating could be due to having not plugged in the drive fully or correctly, or something.

Well, you already have Windows installed on your laptop.

First make changes to Windows. Here is a link to the instructions:

After you make the changes you'll need to reboot and go into BIOS during the initial laptop start up routine. Check your owner's manual for instructions.

Here is a general purpose link that should help you with BIOS:

After you make the change in Windows and the change in BIOS you can go ahead and do the optimizations in the first link I posted.
