    Hi

    Uninstalled,

    3D Driveguard is still greyed out in tray No unknown devices/exclamations in device manager ,
    uninstalled it & reinstalled latest one from hp site, but still the same - I assume that Accelerometer have no function in SSD - is that the reason for it being greyed out, just a doubt?

    I found another great article who confirms:
    Windows optimize tool defrags SSD instead of trim function as a part of Automatic maintenance, but will not defrag if done manually from optimize tool.

    Do read this article with his suggestions & workaround - I just applied his fix on mine, Hope it goes well,

    You don't need 3D Driveguard for an SSD. It would sense a drop and park the heads on the drive to prevent damage to the hard drive platters and heads. No moving parts in an SSD so it won't do anything. That's likely why its greyed out. That's why I like clean installs. You pick what does and doesn't get installed.

    Thanks alphanumeric .
    Ok, so I'll have to live with it

    My WinSAT experience index DiskScore is 5.9:

    Previously when HDD was there, it was 5.7, will it not change when you put SSD?

    I ran the Winaero WEI Tool, option 3 in this tutorial, Windows Experience Index - Update or Refresh WEI Score in Windows 8 and it shows 7.3 for primary hard drive.

    Graphics is the bottleneck - got 5.3 score by using this tool & winsat

    Why WinSAT didn't show actual score for diskdrive, any reason?

    Graphics were my bottle neck too, I scored a scored 5.6. NVidia GT 640. I'm not why WinSAT was different for you, maybe the command you ran. It's also listed in the link I gave you.
