Re: "ATIQuake" miniGL for Q1 & Q2 on Rage Pro

in Marvin \ Video
I had a Ati Xpert Play PCI with a 233 MMX, Quake 1 kinda worked. Maybe at 20/25 fps, difficult to remember. Same card as the Xpert Work, but with TV out. I think it was a Rage Pro. With the usual Ati OpenGL defects , all particles are squarred 😀 Adding a Voodoo1 was a great improvement.

Re: Save my 9800 ! :)

Progress ! I baked the card, and changed the main capacitors. When the card is cold, Linux see it, but after a reboot it's already hot and no sign of life. so there are chances there's a bad solder. Need to reflow correctly ... Booting with "nomodeset" : #dmesg : [ 4.535280] [drm] VGACON disable …

Colorgraphic Predator LT 2 PCI

in Marvin \ Video
Here's a funny card I have. Colorgraphic Predator LT 2 PCI, with 2 Savage 4 and a Hint bridge. Since there's Savage 4 , we could expect some minimal performances, but it's a piece of garbage. The only interest is it supports 2 screens natively, but I estimate the 2D performance as low as a S3 Trio. …

Maybe there's hope ! After baking in the oven, Linux tried to load the "radeon" module. Since the primary card is a (strange) Savage 4 Dual screen, it can only be the 9800. It failed to complete to boot, and the next one doesn't find it. Nothing in "lspci" . But it's better I suppose 😀

I know that case. Unfortunately I already recycled mine since it was in bad shape otherwise would have grabbed parts for you. Got it part of this lot a little over a year ago. Wasn't crazy about it TBH. Thanks :) But in fact the case is complete, excepted of course where there's the drives. It's in …

Was it used without the fan? Any broken off ICs, SMDs or cut traces? I can't tell for sure. When I got it it was outside, under the rain. The fan was totally seized by rust, so I don't think it just happened in one day. The screws for the fan were rusty too. And what is funny it's the only place I …

I have cleaned the contacts, of course, tried booting with only the card powered, so no hard disk or anything else , and no sign of life 🙁 I'm afraid there's no way to save it.

Save my 9800 ! :)

I found a computer on the side walk. Of course, it didn't work. In fact it's just because of a dead video card, so problem rapidly solved. Asus P4C800-E mainboard, Pentium 4 2.8 GHZ, Sound Blaster Audigy , 2 Dvd /writers, Zip IDE drive, a junk wifi card with which I never managed to connect to my …
