Windows 7 Experience Index Tags: Windows 7 Last response: September 6, 2012 2:59 AM in Windows 7 Share minato08 September 6, 2012 2:45:40 AM Hello, I'm making this thread because I recently bought this dell inspiron 15r ( http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Dell-Inspiron-15R-S... ) and in the article it states the laptop has a certain Windows 7 Experience Index score on it. I had the same score on my laptop, but since i bought it used I wanted to do a clean install of windows, so I requested the USB from Dell and restored it to Dell factory default windows 7. The problem is that now the rating dropped and I don't know why, any solutions on how to raise it back to normal? or does that score even matter? Here is what I get now: BTW: How do I check that intel turbo boost is working? I have the monitor program and it never goes up, it is supposed to go from 2.0 to 3.1 but apparently it never rises... should I overclock it?

It can and generally will randomly change your score for no apparent reason. m 0 l samuelspark September 6, 2012 2:59:19 AM Yeah. It's all bull. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
