On my laptop just a few days ago my Windows Experience Index score in both "graphics" categories shot up from two 4.4's to two 6.1's. I have made no hardware changes other than disconnecting and reconnecting the HDD. Now here's my question, why did this happen? did my graphics card really get that much better? did an update change the way it's rated? or did the hard drive have something to do with it?

WEI isn't the most reliable or accurate measure of a system's performance from what I've heard. I'd consider it an anomaly.
