I am new to benchmarking. I have finally decided to just bench my PC to see what is hits in terms of score. Seeing that I have been tweaking my laptop for the past week with pretty much whatever I know.

Specs are in sig under the HP laptop. Thoughts and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Something is definitley wrong. I don't know much about Laptop hardware, and maybe someone else can chime in, but your GPU score is just wrong. What, exactly you say, have you been tweaking?

Mostly basic stuff. The main 2 that I have changed is a bios that forces the amd card to be the only card active. And the beta driver installation.

These 2 allowed me to jump up some of the graphic settings in some of my games I play.

I decided to do some testing. I am a noob at this so any suggestions are always welcome.

So to see if my little basic tweaks actually are worth doing i decided to do a 4 phase test. My laptop has switchable graphics. If you don't know what that is basicly I have 2 video cards. The first one is integrated. The basic Intel graphics 3000 card. (crappy for gaming....) Then I have a Radeon HD 6770m. It is pretty decent for the lightweight occasional gaming I do. The whole idea of this is for power savings and performance when needed. My bios allows me to either run one card or a seamless switch between the 2 based on needs.

So to see if my basic tweaks are actually worth doing I decided to do a 4 phase test with 3dmark 11.

Phase 1 - Test with stock regular drivers with the regular bios setting.
Phase 2 - Test with stock regular drivers with fixed grfx setting in bios.
Phase 3 - Test with new beta AMD drivers with the regular bios setting.
Phase 4 - Test with new beta AMD drivers with fixed grfx setting in bios.

Results

Phase 1 - Results
Phase 2 - Results
Phase 3 - Results
Phase 4 - Results

Thoughts?
