Default Cant install ?

I have tried to install 3dmarks 2006 on my computer about 5 different times and I still can't get it to install ! It will install but when I click on it it says scanning system and just sits there and does nothing after a couple of minutes I have to reboot my computer because it locks it up. I have never had any problems with it in the pass, what could be wrong ?

Hi,

There is a known issue in 3DMark06's SystemInfo module which causes the scan to either lock up, or in the worst case, BSOD. There is an easy workaround for it until we release the patch that should fix the issue. If you have any USB storage devices connected, please disconnect them. This usually helps. If you don't there is a chance that your IDE drivers cause the lockup. The only way to get around it is to uninstall the IDE drivers, and use the MS ones instead. If nothing helps, you can still run 3DMark06 by adding the commandline "-nosysteminfo" to the shortcut. However, though you will be able to run 3DMark06, your result won't be valid online (ORB) since we have no information of your system. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Cheers,

Nick
