Improving Performance

Dell Inspiron 1420 notebook
September 1, 2009 at 09:50:55
Specs: Windows Vista
I recently reset my laptop to it's factory settings and installed most the programs I had before, but I noticed that my Windows Experience Index in graphics has went down.

Here's some of the specs:

Manufacturer Dell Inc.
Model Inspiron 1420
Total amount of system memory 3.00 GB RAM
System type 32-bit operating system
Number of processor cores 2
64-bit capable Yes


Total size of hard disk(s) 146 GB
Disk partition (C:) 93 GB Free (136 GB Total)
Disk partition (D:) 6 GB Free (10 GB Total)
Media drive (E:) CD/DVD


Display adapter type NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
Total available graphics memory 1407 MB
Dedicated graphics memory 128 MB
Dedicated system memory 0 MB
Shared system memory 1279 MB
Display adapter driver version
Primary monitor resolution 1280x800
DirectX version DirectX 10

I'm wondering why that happened? And how can I increase my dedicated graphics memory since my graphics card should go up to 256mb? And what's dedicated system memory? Thanks.

Went down by how much ?

1--You can have Windows re-evaluate system specs and refresh system score any time you want.

2--If any of your programs does not complain of playing or installing because of low graphics points, you should not bother.
