Drivers for VLB card S3 p86c805 wont work

Postby northdale » 2019-6-12 @ 16:43

I have almost this card http://www.vgamuseum.info/index.php/new ... -s3-86c805

But it says p in front "p86c805" and no I at the end.

I have tried to install drivers for it (win 3.11) but non of the drivers seam to work. Windows restarts into dos saying could not start the driver.

I have tried a few drivers as you can see here.

What is the source of these drivers? Have you tried the files from metropoli BBS?

I'm not sure whether 805 and 805i chipsets share the same driver files ("i" = memory interleaving) but most likely yes.

Hi. Yes I tried these drivers.
And drivers from here: viewtopic.php?t=28133
and here http://www.retrocomputing.org/cgi-bin/s ... d=retroorg

I just installed another vlb card that works, but I would prefer the other one.

If the card has a jumper to enable INTerrupt, then make sure that it is set.
