Re: Matrox card questions

Thanks, dionb. That kind of comparison to a TNT2 was one of my curiosities. Driver problems is my guess, too. Could this G550 be an OEM variant, which is why it has a subsys ID that's not in Matrox's official driver package? The mobo in my Win98 box is a Biostar M7VIG400, in case there are known …

Re: Matrox card questions

Thanks, guys, this is good information. dionb, that explains a lot, and fits other descriptions I've read about Matrox in general. My Millennium II has been a great 2D card in my MMX233 box, so I was hoping for something as good or better for a Win98 box. I had gotten the G550 to a stable desktop by …

Re: Matrox card questions

Error, you might be right about EpicA being related to the P690. A predecessor maybe? According to a wiki about Parhelia, the P690 was released in 2007. Both my G550 and EpicA cards has copyright 2004 stamped on the PCB. I came across a datasheet for P690 and they all have 128MB DDR2. So I searched …

Re: Matrox card questions

Thanks, Error. Before shutting down last night I did find the SUBSYS number of the G550, after searching the registry. Mine is 0F42102B. I added it to the list in the inf file, and that allowed it to be detected by the setup program. However, the PowerDesk utility prevents Windows from loading the …

Re: Matrox card questions

Thanks for the replies so far. No experiences with an EpicA ? :) I decided to take a shot at installing mine using driver versions 6.82 and 6.83. The driver setup program is not finding the card so it will not install the driver. Using the Add/Remove Hardware tool from Control Panel and directing it …

Matrox card questions

Hi guys, I found a couple of Matrox cards in one of my boxes and looking for some information. I've searched here and in Google and so far not finding much. First card is a 32MB G550 low profile PCI (G55MDDAP32DBF). In Matrox's archived drivers list the G400 drivers for Windows 98 lists G550 as …

Re: Win95c - OpenGL not working with Voodoo3

I solved the OpenGL problem. After finding the following thread here https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=51511 I checked my System32 folder and found 3dfxogl.dll as well as an opengl32.dll left behind from another video card. I removed the opengl32.dll, then made a copy of 3dfxogl.dll renamed to …

Win95c - OpenGL not working with Voodoo3

Hi guys, I've encountered a problem on my K6/233 machine. I have Windows 95c with a PCI Voodoo3 2000. The driver is version 1.07 WHQL downloaded from falconfly. Everything has been running fine for a while playing some non-3D Windows games, and some DOS games in DOS mode. I finally tried to add some …

Re: Radeon 9250 vs GF 6200 vs FX 5200 for Win98?

It's been a while but I finally got back to using this Win98 machine and made some recent discoveries. As it was in September with the FX5200 it booted and games were playing. However, when copying files from a USB disk or installing something from CDs I ran into a lot of hard lockups. Also, often …

Re: Radeon 9250 vs GF 6200 vs FX 5200 for Win98?

Thanks, swaaye. That's good to know about the driver and heatsinks. It still has paste, some AS5 I put on it when I got it. I can see it when I look from the side with the heatsink tilted, looks gummy. The card was used by a smoker so it had a bunch of that thick dust to be cleaned off. I might go …
