Re: IBM Aptiva - which graphics card?

Don't know if it was v1 or V2, didn't give it too much attention. Just checked what CPU is might support and since it didn't take coppermine I didn't feel like keeping it. Looking at some of pics it had a 600MHz P3, not a 500... (Dxdiag). Didn't make pics from the motherboard so I don't know for …

Re: IBM Aptiva - which graphics card?

[...] And a Packerd Bell computer with onboard Voodoo 3, 8 MB and very low clocked (sold that one already, I'm not into PB). Argh, if you ever come across one again, give me a message. For oddball reasons (basically an inside joke with an ex-colleague from the PB helpdesk 20 years ago) I'm trying …

Re: IBM Aptiva - which graphics card?

I hope you rescue the voodoo computers to get the voodoo hardware? Voodoo anything is rare and good demand. Cheers, So far I got a working Voodoo 3 3000 AGP (the one I mentioned), a voodoo 1 (seems to be recognised by win98, needs further testing) and this voodoo 2 that might or might not work in …

Re: IBM Aptiva - which graphics card?

Seems like my Aptiva is getting stuck on the Rage II+... I put in my M64 and Windows detected the card. I installed the driver (Nvidia version 71.something) which I always use for all my Gforce 2 and older cards. Windows won't boot and the thing gets too hot to touch within minutes. And yes, the …

Re: IBM Aptiva - which graphics card?

PCI TNT2 + Voodoo 1 is what this PC needs IMO That would need a fourth PCI slot, which is not present unfortunately. No Voodoo2 isn't an issue in terms of performance, a TNT2-M64 is pretty equivalent. You just lose native GLide and "image quality" (Voodoos have that lovely fuzzy effect). Voodoo3 …

Re: IBM Aptiva - which graphics card?

Thanks everybody! So it seems the TNT would be the way to go! (it seems it's a M64 model, but I guess the PCI bus will be the bottleneck here) Unfortunately it won't be doing a Voodoo2 along with the TNT2, because there are just 3 PCI slots. I already have a LAN card in it, and want to add USB 2.0 …

IBM Aptiva - which graphics card?

Help everybody, I've been here for quite a while, mostly stealth, only not to long ago made an account here. A while ago I bought an IBM Aptiva 2137-E60. The hard drive was whiped and the CDROM drive is dead (won't open, think it's fixable). The positive side: it's almost in mint condition. I …

Re: Weird VLB S3 928 graphics card

Too bad... Guess I'll stick with the TGUI9420 then 😀 Maybe the memory modules are any good for other graphics cards, so I can rip them off then. I know my IBM Valuepoint has two empty sockets on the motherboard, not sure yet if these would do.

Re: Weird VLB S3 928 graphics card

Be carefull and aware.... Caps and other SMD components missing and halfway ripped off: R226, R12, C328 and more.... Pins on the S3-928 chip it self are bent. Whut? Why didn't I notice that earlier? Good thing I didn't just pop it into my 486. So... basically this card is not usable for me. I'm not …

Weird VLB S3 928 graphics card

Hello everyone, I'm sort of new here. I have been reading a lot of posts here for quite some time now. And found a lot of answers to my retro stuff. Thanks for that! But since I'm stuck at some stuff I decided to create an account and post some questions myself. Here comes the first one. Some time …
