Default Problems in Win7 final with Windows Experience index test and crash

I've swapped my VaioP hdd with a Runcore SSD today and installed Win7 retail.

I had a problem with the system crashing which now seems to be OK.

However when running the "Rate this computer" Windows Experience index tool, the system becomes unresponsive and locks up.

I'm running it again now with the resolution reduced to 1024x768 and it seems to be working OK. But does anyone have any tips on how to get it to work with the full resolution?

I've updated the latest Oct 2009 Intel driver from the Vaio P UK support site.

Edit: OK, it's not working in 1024x768, it just got a bit further along than before.

Have you tried the GMA driver which comes via Windows Update? That's what I'm using and can run Windows Experience at full resolution no problems.

It crashed in 1024 too, but now without knowing what I've done to fix it, it all seems OK and have had no more crashes.

Thanks for the replies.
