I have a STB voodoo3 AGP card that will post, however after a few seconds the screen will blank out, after a few more seconds it will come back. So it is almost like it just looses sync but keeps running so it isn't freezing up completely. I have looked extensively for loose solder joints, particularly focusing on pins 13 and 14 and bypassed some of the ferrite chokes on the board without a change in behavior.
Could bad ram cause this behavior? I usually relate bad ram to garbage characters on the screen, which when this card is displaying an image, it looks perfect, so I don't think RAM is the issue. I fear it may be the GPU itself, but was checking if anyone here had another idea to try.
