    I just got a tx2000 last week. I understand the WEI rating for the tx2000 is limited by the graphics card. I was wondering what WEI rating other tx2000 owners are getting for their laptops? My overall rating is a 2.4 because my gaming graphics is a 2.4. The weird thing is while I was in Fry's playing with a tx2000, I noticed that the display laptop had a value of 3.0 and the gaming graphics was 3.0. This value corresponds with what has been posted by another tabletpcreview user.

    Is there some way for me to increase the value of my gaming graphics or is there some odd thing going on with my laptop?

    Well I have a tx2100 which has 1G extra ram and a bigger hdd... and that gives me a 3.0

    I did switch off some things in vista's visualisation... like the unnessecary transparent "glass" borders for windows. But I think it was 3.0 before I did that.

    Would be nice to get it higher though ;)

    I have a rating of 3.0 due to the graphics as well. I have aero on as well.

    You should check your bios to allow 128MB to the gpu. I believe by default its either on 32 or 64

    Do you really think it's the driver that's causing the problem? I mean other tx2000 users don't have to go download GeForce Go drivers to hit 3.0. I wonder why my laptop would require that. I do have the most up to date HP issued GeForce Go driver. Hmm...I am starting to wonder if I have a malfunctioning graphics card. I might return this laptop back to HP and let them take care of it.

    This made no difference with my tx1030ea (1.6GHz TL-52) - I get 2.4 on the gaming index. My new tx2130ea (2.0GHz TL-60) is 3.0 on the gaming index. That's a 25% improvement and matches the difference in CPU clock.

    Drivers could make a difference, but fundamentally you can't just comapre on tx2000 with another - there is a wide range of CPU performance options and the CPU will definitely have a bearing on the gaming performance.

    Are you sure your tx was operating at full speed cpu-wise? Was the AC power connected and high performance power mode selected?
