Re: Trouble installing Matrox G450 PCI on Win98(SE)

There was a similar problem here: https://www.vcfed.org/forum/forum/genres/pentium-first-generation/45571-matrox-millenium-g450-which-win98se-driver that remained unresolved. Maybe it is actually a resource / IRQ conflict of some sort... Seeing how this revision of cards is a fair bit newer, and …

Trouble installing Matrox G450 PCI on Win98(SE)

Hey everyone. I just wanna quickly share my experience, after banging my head against this issue for almost 10 hours (and finally solving it... sort of) My test rig : Socket A machine w/ VIA chipset, an AthlonXP2000+, 256MB of DDR1@266mhz, and 2 HDDs ( 1 for Win98 & 1 for WinXP). I have two Matrox …

Re: Voodoo 3 2000, missing C95 cap

I can confirm what kixs said. I've seen cards install fine with all those 3 caps broken, and even C41.

Re: 3dfx Voodoo Banshee WinXP issues

HA! I think I've unraveled the mistery of why this Chaintech card stood out from the bunch! It's the only card (that i ever tested) that has the oldest version (of 3) chip variants to have been put on the Banshee: "500-0013-03" [1001] Others are: "500-0013-04" [1001] "500-0013-04" [3001] https:// …

Re: 3dfx Voodoo Banshee WinXP issues

You're right for sure! But I was just afraid of maybe hidden defects that might not immediately be apparent in 98., but are revealed in XP In any case, after careful thinking and consideration, I think I'll be choosing another card to keep.. Although i absolutely loved how this one looked and the …

Re: 3dfx Voodoo Banshee WinXP issues

...so ...i can boot XP in "VGA Mode", and it starts in 16 colors; and i can see the card is installed fine. No exclamation mark, no detected conflicts. But as soon as i set the color mode to 256 or above, the screen goes black with the mouse cursor on top. And if i give it the 15 seconds to …

3dfx Voodoo Banshee WinXP issues

Hey all! Has anybody ever encountered issues with a Banshee, where it would seem to work perfectly on Win98, but wouldn't work under XP?? (on the same machine?!) I have a 1st generation Banshee with a "1001"-type chipset (Chaintech Desperado AGP-3F10) with [1.00.03-ET] BIOS, that puts out a …
