8400M GS and Low Windows Experience Index

Hi All,

I have an HP 6915ee laptop with an NVIDIA 8400M GS video card. It has a windows experience index of 3.2:

Processor: 5.1
Memory: 5.1
Graphics 3.2
Gaming graphics: 5.2
Primary hard disk: 5.4

As you can see, my "Graphics" is quite low. Why would Graphics be significantly less than Gaming graphics? I would expect it to be the other way around as games are more intense than Windows Aero. I have never seen anyones scores where the Graphics score was less than the Gaming graphics score.

I also do notice that Windows Aero does not run AS smooth as some of the other computers I have used. Even my Dell laptop with an ATI x1400 felt like it ran smoother. Don't get me wrong, it runs pretty good but I feel it should be better, especially the smoothness of minimizing/maximizing windows.

I have tried updating to the most recent video card drivers but it doesn't seem to help. Anyone know if my score is what it should be or is something wrong?

Thanks for the help.
