go to your bios, and see if the multiplier or FSB decreased.
If not, i think that theres an option where it downclock your CPU to save energy and stuff when its around Idle.
I would check my bios and see whats up, maybe load default settings.

I think that when vista came out they said they were going to update the score system every once in a while. Maybe they finally made an update?

edit: Nevermind if your post says 2ghz instead of 3ghz it's probably FSB or Multilpier like Teny said.

that wouldn't affect the score though, to get your score it utilizes your cpu so it wouldn't be idling while running the test to generate the score, I would do what you first suggested and check the bios, it's probably the multiplier, it probably dropped to 6 from 9, 6 is 2/3s of 9 and 2GHZ is 2/3s of 3GHZ, so it makes sense...

great suggestion. i will go into the bios and check if thats what happened. You are probably 100% right Teny, as my Mobo has this energy saving options, so that could very well be the problem.

you should be looking for like Advanced Chipset options, or something similar.
Not all mobos say that for OC options, so check each things.
Then when you find it, find something that says multiplier.
I think the CPU FSB should be 1066Mhz, and i dont know what multiplier you have, mines is 9.5.
when you find the multiplier see if its any low number, if it is, then up the multiplier till your CPU gets to 3.0Ghz.
Though it might be good to know your multiplier number, although i dont think you can go above the original stock multiplier number.

EIST is to save energy, it automatically drops your CPU multiplier to 6 when at idle, it will jump back up once the system goes under load. The only reason to disable it is if you are overclocking.
