    So apparently it's rating my Intel HD 3000 Integrated GPU so gives me a lower score..
    I know the display is connected to that GPU but can I make it rate my GT540M.

    Thanks.

    You should have Nvidia Control Panel and it should be set to Auto-select. Do you have latest drivers installed?

    I have the latest drivers(331.40) and it's auto-select..Still rating the Intel on desktop performance.

    Oh, mine does that also, not enough demand to kick in the high performance GPU I guess. Not sure how you can get around that unless you have an option in BIOS to always use the Nvidia GPU. I don't.

    I tried setting the WinSAT.exe to use the high performance GPU but still didn't seem to use it for the desktop score. It is a common problem as shown here: Windows Experience Index not Using Dedicated Graphics Card

    Wanted to add that WEI is kind of useless anyway. As long as your desktop is performing the way you want do you really care what values WEI shows for desktop graphics performance?
