Re: Sick voodoo 1 card

Recently I fixed a Trident card, which had video chip in exactly same form factor as Voodoo. I was getting video glitches too. The main chip just desoldered itself off the board, pins were floating above the PCB. You can see how it looks here in close-up (40 sec. in the video): https://youtu.be/ …

Failing SMD solder on old devices (pins of VGA chipsets etc. getting loose), how common is that?

Yesterday I found out that my Trident TVGA8900D started giving a garbled image. It turned out, that a lot of legs on the video chipset have gotten loose. It was clearly visible under a microscope, the pins were moving, there are also black gaps: I fixed the issue by re-soldering the chip with …
