comment Does Windows optimise differently for SSD installation?
It's an HP Elitebook, looking at the spec I think you're right, 3Gb/s SATA II... Is that really all I can expect then from the drive and nothing is particularly wrong?

Hey sorry I forgot to mention, just did the check using 'wmic partition get Name, StartingOffset', all the start points are divisible by 4096 so it's not that. Sound idea though.

comment Does Windows optimise differently for SSD installation?
I used a Ubuntu live CD to duplicate the partition structure, and then copied the Windows partitions across. That didn't immediately work, I needed to run a chkdsk on it which cleaned up more things than I was expecting. After that Windows booted fine. I'm tempted to reinstall Windows just as an experiment though.

@magicandre1981 I have added the benchmark, it does look low compared to what I've seen.

comment What controls the RAM voltage value?
@Tyson when I say 'to generate the required voltage' I don't mean it creates its own electricity, I just mean it develops a voltage level by selectively consuming the voltage available to it from the motherboard.

comment How do debug HDMI port
Unfortunately I only have one device to test it with... It's an interesting point about the signal strength, the projector does seem to make an effort to communicate but gives up after a while.
