Everytime i try to load 3dmark06, it always freezes at the splash screen where its trying to find out my system specs. I left it on that screen for like 10 mins and it was still like that. why does it keep freezing... it worked fine when i was on vista. I didnt really like vista so i reformatted my drive and installed a clean copy of xp pro.

System:
asus p5k deluxe
qx6700
4x1gb team extreme 3-3-3-8 ddr2
sapphire hd2900xt
wd raptor 150
windows xp pro

"Q: I just bought the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT and 3DMark06 freezes during the splash-screen. What is wrong and how can I fix this?
A: This is a known issue and we have been able to reproduce it in our test lab. The problem lays in an DLL which we use to detect the graphics cards' core and memory speeds. We are working on an update to correct this issue after which all Futuremark benchmarks should run fine with the latest offerings from all IHV's. Until then you can work around this issue either by renaming the "Direcpll.dll" file (found in %WINDIR%\system32\Futuremark\MSC\) to something else, or you can run the benchmark using the -nosysteminfo command line. Please note that if you use the -nosysteminfo command line, you will not be able to publish the result online. Futuremark will inform all its users when the update is available!"

You have to launch the benchmark with the -nosysteminfo parameter ( @ shortcut ) or download the latest detection library update ( direcpll.dll )

Does downloading and applying the dll update allow you to publish scores?
