Performance subscore drop after adding RAM by PaulYuratich
Hi. I've got an Intel Quad Core Processor, Vista 64 Ultimate, and 4 GB of DDRII 800 RAM. At that point my base performance score was 5.3, and RAM was 5.3. Tonite I just added 4GB more of DDRII 800 RAM and recalculated my score. RAM score is now 4.8. The computer is recognizing the full 8 GB. I surely was expecting my score to go UP. What's going on?

Vista says AC '97 audio working, but media center says no device by Chuckf1234
I have an MSI motherboard with onboard Realtek audio. I have downloaded and installed the latest Vista drivers. The control panel reports the device is properly installed and working, and that there are no IRQ conflicts.

Computer keeps thrashing by icky
I don't know what's wrong. I've scanned and defragmented my system (more than once,) I've deleted some files (including some cookies, temporary internet files and my history) and I've rebooted a few times. Yet, the system still keeps thrashing. Could it be an unknown virus? Should I downgrade to Windows XP? BTW, I've had this laptop for 10 months...

Memory strangeness by Azin[_2_]
I've just installed another 2 Gig of RAM because Vista ultimate 64bit is quite hungry for memory. In the windows experience index I had a score of 5.6 out of 5.9, with the 2 gig of memory bringing it down to 5.6, the rest of the hardware scoring top at 5.9 I thought that by installing 4 gig in total my memory score would go up to 5.9 too, but can you believe it, it's dropped to 5.5!...
