I got a 12MB Voodoo 2 card a little while ago, and recently tried to use it, and it's not working. Like, at all. Causes the computer to totally lock up when a 3D application is launched.
So, I did a little research and found out about the debug logging environment variables, and ran Mojo to see if it would generate a debug file.
It doesn't. It generates the text file, but it's empty. The only debugging information I get appears on the screen for a second before the screen goes black, here:
Video passthrough works, and the card APPEARS to be in good shape (a bulk capacitor was dented, but I removed and tested it and it still reads fine and isn't leaky)
My only thoughts are that the DRAM in Bank 0 appears to be corrupt or damaged, so anything attempting to access it causes a crash, or the main chips are damaged in some way that isn't visually apparent.
I have some pictures of the board, it's an STB manufactured 3DFX 12mb Voodoo 2
Which of the memory banks is bank 0, and should I even attempt to replace the DRAM, or is this card totally borked?
