Re: Any hope for this dead 3DFX Voodoo 1

L11 doesn't look good. C105 is on an angle for some reason. I would check all capacitors and ferrites with a multimeter. The best test for these is in a pure dos environment with Tomb Raider 1 3dfx. Also have a look at my post here 3dfx Voodoo 1 fault diagnosis and repair
