Windows Experience Index

While I'm enjoying the learning curve of Windows 7, I've noticed that the Windows Experience Index has dropped badly.

I'm dual booting with Vista HP and in that OS my HD has a rating of 5.3, while in Win7 it only has a rating of 2.0! All the other ratings are the same for both O/S's

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite Pro A300 and I've tried various Toshiba latest Vista drivers with no joy.

Has anyone else come across this sort of problem and if so have you found a solution yet?

It worked! Before with the write cache enabled I got a score of 2.9, unchecked I now come in at 5.7.

Thanks for the tip.
