Low Windows Performance Index Numbers

HP Recommended
Elitebook Workstation 8760W
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

In the upgrading of my "new" Elitebook, I installed a 1 TB SSD, and currently have 16 GB of RAM on board.

I had a problem getting into the machine to install an OS, so I cloned the HD in an 8760W to get into it.

 

RAM, Processor and Primary hard disk numbers in the Windows Performance Index are first rate; 7.5, 7.1,

and 7.8 ...  but the graphics performance numbers (Windows Aero and Gaming Graphics) are both 1.0 .

 

I suspect that I'm running the beast with the wrong graphics drivers (the ones in the i5), but I'm not sure of

that.

 

Where do I go from here?

 

Where do I start looking from here?

Fooled around with this again... 

 

Investigation in BIOS revealed that the i5 machine uses an AMD video card, and the i7 has an Nvidia

installed.

 

A driver reload with the proper drivers cured the problem...  it's now scoring 7.1 in Windows.  😊

 

Funny tho...  the card seemed to work well with the wrong drivers installed.
