I managed to get my hands on a Voodoo Banshee for really cheap (1$). It had some busted caps near the memory modules that I replaces with new ones of same values. The VGA connector is bent but on a connectivity check, no pins short-circuit and the ground pins are where they should be.
On a visual inspection, everything is where it should be.
My problem is the video output:
(strange characters, even on video bios init)
The GPU seem to get hotter than normal.
I hope to hear from you if you ever encountered this issue, if it seems fixable (GPU overheating is not a good sign to me) and what I should look for to diagnose it.
Thank you in advance.
