    Hi

    I have windows Vista which had 2Gb of memory.
    The index was 5.2, that was the memory score.

    I have added another 2Gb.
    As its a 32bit OS only 3.5 GB is detected, but when I updated my windows
    experience the score went down for 5.2 to 5.

    Shouldn't it have gone up?

    possibly you did not put in the same speed of memory as you had and the over all speed has been reduced accordingly.

    The WEI will be the number of the worst device on your system. It won't
    give you any credit at all for all the good stuff. Mine is down because I
    only have a few hundred GB of disk space, not a quadzillion. Everything
    else is 5.9, but the disk brings it to 5.2.

    The disk measurement is a measurement of throughput not free space. The WEI
    is not about creating a number to brag about but to point out where the
    bottleneck is so you will have an idea on what would be the best upgrade to
    a system.

    Also, you may have lost dual channel memory performance, depending o
    the type of RAM you installed

    The experience has to do with your system as a whole, anything else
    change recently on your system? Honestly I'd take that score with a
    grain of salt, use some other benchmarking program like 3Dmark06, that
    should give you a slightly more accurate score of your system
    performance.

    Also the difference between 2 gigs ram and 3.5 gigs is going to be
    minimal, if anything. The difference between 1 gig and 2 gigs is huge,
    but from 2gigs to 4 gigs, not so much. In other words, toss em an invest
    the $60 into something else.
