Windows Experience Index on W/7 64Bit

Hi.Just checked to see how my computer was running using Windows Experience Index,

The page comes up and I get this message on it Your windows experience index has not yet been established, Then you press the button for it to rate the computer and nothing happens.

Just wondered if it does not work on 64Bit computers.

[Just press start and type Windows Experience Index into the box ]

It worked on my 32 bit computer when I had it so not sure why it does not work on this one.

It is no big deal it is just you notice something is not working and you wonder why.

I did not know this function existed, but I have just tried it on my W7 64 bit HP and it seems OK. It provided a variety of figures that mean absolutely nothing to me without further investigation, but there were no messages along the lines of your OP.

Ok QuizMan looks like a problem with my computer then.

I will have to have a look around and see why it does not work

Thanks for getting back to me.

Hi,buteman

Just followed your instruction on where/what to type in my Windows 7 64 Bit machine. NOTHING!! No programmes, comments or anything else!! So wherever this came from it appeared that I could not get at it!. I then had a thought and went via Device Manager to be greeted with ALL the details and it telling I needed to re-run it. I did, no change as my graphics card etc., are unchanged!

Well I get two which appear,

1st check the windows experience Index

2nd Use tools to improve performance

both open Windows Experience Index which does not run.

So a bit odd 3 different computers and 3 different results.

If it's a laptop it won't work on batteries. If Control panel is set to large or small icons you will get to System direct. If on category view you will need to navigate as per Snrub's instructions.
