Re: Nirvana

Good recent article/retrospective about Cobain: https://www.newyorker.com/culture/personal-history/my-time-with-kurt-cobain I wasn't quite a teenager when Nevermind came out, but I don't recall Teen Spirit making much of an impression on me... However one day I heard In Bloom and Lithium and it all …

Re: Voodoo 3 bought second hand - dead or not?

Now that you mention it, I've had the same problem for a bit too where the v3 agp wouldn't boot. Then I'd put in an s3 pci card, boot, shut down and take out the pci for the v3 agp and it would magically work again. Never figured out what exactly caused this. From all the research I've done trying …

Re: This video card is corrupting my BIOS??

Quite recently I bought a s462 motherboard from eBay advertised as "tested and working". Well, it didn´t. I contacted the seller about it and he offered a refund. Before leaving negative feedback, try contacting him, If the seller is decent he should act the same way. Altough that won´t bring back …

Re: The "Tweener"

I too have 430HX board laying around with a spare p100 and p166.... (have another P233 that I use for Win9x/DOS gaming)... I've been trying to come up with something to use it for, aside from troubleshooting parts, which it's not that great at as it doesnt support MMX and many 3d accelerator cards …

Re: geforce mx200 corruption

Well done trying to underclock the card, if I got it right the problem lies in the gpu, try to find the maximum underclocked frequency to have it stable, then you could modify the bios with new clock speed. Another try is to use a bigger heatsink if you can, but maybe the card chip was damaged due …

Re: geforce mx200 corruption

Interesting that directx8 runs faster than opengl, always thought that was best for older games and cards... Yeah, it's a common myth that OpenGL runs faster than D3D no matter what. That's due to T&L being implemented on the OpenGL ICD on nVidia cards and OpenGL being a high-level API, T&L on D3D …

Re: geforce mx200 corruption

These kind of shimmering on 2D appears to be normal on these cards and depends of the manufacturer due to the mess that most did on the filters around the RAMDAC. The best ones in regard to image quality are Diamond, ELSA, STB and Compaq. I've noticed that I was talking about blurriness. XD …

Re: geforce mx200 corruption

I did make a little progress, however. On a whim I installed RivaTuner and downclocked the GPU and memory to the recommended min. Surprise, it works fine... ran unreal timedemo for 20 minutes without crash or artifacts. I also neglected to mention the 2d has a bit of an odd 'shimmer' at any …

Re: geforce mx200 corruption

I'm surprised by the lack of responses here. Does the same happens on D3D games? These kind of corruption usually appears to be related to RAM. Good idea let me try that I did make a little progress, however. On a whim I installed RivaTuner and downclocked the GPU and memory to the recommended min. …

geforce mx200 corruption

Hi All So I have this PCI version of an mx200. 2D works without an issue. However there are problems with opengl games. In Quake2 for example, I'm able to get time demo to run once or twice. After that it will start showing artifacts and hard lock the system. Quake3 won't even run the demo, freezes …
