W520 disc speed really slow

My W520 disc speed is really slow. When I run CrystalDiskMark, I get the following. Is this expected speed, or do I have some other issue? I am going to reseat the harddrive and see if that helps.....

 

The drive is a listed as HITACHI HTS727550A9E364 in the Device Manager.

 

I have done a Win7 install from scratch, is it possible I have driver issues?

 

Please help!

Re: W520 disc speed really slow

Your disk is indeed a little slow for a 7200 RPM drive. Have you tried defragging your disk?

Re: W520 disc speed really slow

I have. What is a pretty standard speed for a 7200 drive? How far off the mark am I? The reason I ask is that I use this machine solely for audio, so disk access is top of the list for me. I occasionally get pops and crackles but no CPU spikes, which means disk.....

I'm going to start upgrading drivers tonight and see where I get.....
