The max score on the Vista WEI is 5.9 meaning if you get a 5.9 you have the top of the line performance in that category. With Win7 7.9 is top of the line. Here's my score on my older, slower 6860FX running Win 7 ultimate, overclocked gpu, t8300, 80GB x25-m SSD:



This is a stock p7805u running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit:

Processor 5.9
Memory 5.9
Graphics 6.8
Gaming 6.8
Primary HD 5.8

This is what that same stock p7805u gets on Windows Vista HP 64:

Processor 5.2
Memory 5.9
Graphics 5.9
Gaming 5.9
Primary HD 5.7

Hope that helps you put WEI into perspective.
I get same scores on my p7805u, Only difference is Im not running SSD. And yes my GPU scores 6.8 on win 7 and is overclocked to 675/1650/825, so thats get me higher score. I ran 3dmark06 and end up with over 10k. And I upgraded to P8600 CPU.

I've been trying for the last hour to get the chipset drivers from the Intel site, but their download center link is down...for a whole hour! I tried everything I could think of on both IE and Firefox. I'll try again later. Don't get me wrong - I love my P-7811 FX! I was just expecting a noticable difference with the upgrade. It was a few hundred dollars, and was a great bargain at that. I think the biggest disappointment was the SSD. I'm sure it shows a big difference in speed tests, I just don't see it for myself. I'll keep working on the drivers until I have all the latest and greatest.

I know this thread looks like it's been dead for 5 days, and I'm new here too. I've been scouring the internet looking for instructions or which component to open to gain access to my GPU in order to clean the fan and vent (I also have a FX-7811).

So far everywhere I've looked and heard from has been saying that either I can take off the panels on the underside (which I am well aware of, I added a second HDD) or to take off the keyboard.

I was mostly wondering if the guides to remove the keyboard will yield me my access to the GPU area.. If not then could someone possibly fill me in?

I replaced my P-6831 HDD with a WD Scorpio Black WD3200BJKT and I was wondering if I bought another one could I just drop it in my laptop and use it without having to Raid it or reinstall windows?

Yes. If you're not going to RAID and you're just planning on using it as a secondary drive then you don't have to reinstall.

Thanks for the guide, it showed one screw I missed, looks like I'll have to take my second hard drive back out

Cheers for a clean GPU!
post #1810 of 2331
Using an external drive with the esata connection, when I turn the drive off, I cannot turn it back on and use it again without turning off and back on the computer. Is there another way to recognize the drive again? I've even tried administrative tools, rescanning the drives.
