    why dont you tell us what the model number is (incase you dont know, go to my computer, right click c: drive, go to hardware tab and let us know the model number?)
    just bought an seagate xt and the drive still is 5.9 but i know it is woking becasue it is fster to boot up.

    I believe all conventional HDDs are capped at 5.9--the only way to get higher is to use an SSD.

    On another note, I experienced the "flickering lines on screen" issue after updating to BIOS 1.11, but it only happened once and I was unable to reproduce the issue.

    Hmm, very strange how my E350 is only scoring a 3.4. I have the CPU set to the highest performance level.

    Try running the test again, it should be 3.8 like everyone else. If you have the Lenovo power management software install, try to changing the speed to highest while you have the ac plug in.

    I will try putting it to highest, but I have re-run the test twice now. o_O

    Edit: No dice, still 3.4, oh well, not a solid benchmark tool anyway.

    Did you have the laptop plugin to the wall, it might effect the performance of the processor if you leave it running on battery.

    Thanks for the link with the Win7 download locations. I used it to put a clean install on my new SSD.

    Before I switched out the hard drives, I neglected to backup the default Lenovo backgrounds and logon screen. Would you be kind enough to upload them? They look much better than the bright blue Win7 logon screen and background. :p

    The CPU power setting was set to max anyway. I did a BIOS update and it's now reporting 3.8 and I'm finding the computer to be a little more responsive not to mention my battery indicator no longer reports "No battery installed".

    My power button is also working correctly now too. Sometimes the computer would just shut off when I pushed the power button. That seems to be gone now. I haven't checked to see if the stuttering audio is gone though.

    Just wanted to say that the WEI test won't run when on batteries. Just for reference :)
