Windows 98 not refreshing CD

I recall this bug from waaay back and I vaguely recall having a fix for it but I can't for the life remember what I used to do. Basically, Windows 98 half the time doesn't refresh the CD when I insert a new CD. It will sometimes even autoplay the menu of the PREVIOUS CD instead of the newly inserted …

Re: Voodoo 3 bought second hand - dead or not?

Even if you remove the pins, the heatsink still holds very well after all these years. I think it is best to leave it and mount some fan, should be more than enough. Also - some V3 3000 have glued heatsink - the V3 3000 PCI SGR (the PCB has no holes for the pins). And some revisions of V3 3000 AGP …

Re: Voodoo 3 bought second hand - dead or not?

Now that you mention it, I've had the same problem for a bit too where the v3 agp wouldn't boot. Then I'd put in an s3 pci card, boot, shut down and take out the pci for the v3 agp and it would magically work again. Never figured out what exactly caused this. From all the research I've done trying …

Re: Voodoo 3 bought second hand - dead or not?

OK it works! I did the following in case someone else runs into the issue: - first installed a PCI 2D card (Matrox Mystique) without Voodoo 3 - set BIOS to run from PCI first - installed drivers for 2D card (you might think this is optional but until I did, the next steps didn't work - maybe it's …

Re: Voodoo 3 bought second hand - dead or not?

If you insert both PCI and AGP video cards, check your motherboard BIOS if there is a setting that disables one or the other bus. Or else you won't be able to detect it. I'm not sure if win98 will detect dual video cards but the 3dfx bios Flash utility can detect the card: https://3dfxbios.cl- …

Re: Voodoo 3 bought second hand - dead or not?

Have you got a PCI card you can boot with alongside the Voodoo3 to see if it appears in Device Manager, or is readable by the BIOS flash utiity? I'll try that - I have a PCI Matrox I can install. I already sent a message to the seller explaining my problem and saying I suspect the card is dead, …

Voodoo 3 bought second hand - dead or not?

This is a tough one for me. I bought a Voodoo 3 3000 for my Pentium III Windows 98 system since it seems the perfect card for both DOS and Windows 9X games (apparently Voodoo 3 has high DOS VESA compatibility). The seller claims it was fully working when he sold it but when I tested in my system, it …
