Hello!

I have a quite rare Miromedia Vooodoo 2 12 MB with missing C207 capacitor. It freezes on initialization (computer sees it normally but going to 3DFx settings hangs my machine).

By any chance, does anybody knows what capacitor it might be?

Sincerely,
New user Konrad

EDIT: C15 on the other side is also missing. Now I'm sad 🙁

Doubt that 1 missing cap will make the card not work. Right TMU has some funny looking pins, maybe check that.

Edit: C193 sits sideways.

O damn! You're right! I've missed that. Now, it looks really bad 😒

With a careful steady hand you bend those pins back into place. I've used a very fine sowing pin or needle you can also try using a Xacto knife to bend the pins apart.

It likely is still repairable. (if you've got the tools/patience/... , or know someone who has those things and a willingness to try)

Right to repair is fundamental. You own it, you're allowed to fix it.

I've found one guy in Poland. I'll try to contact him. Thanks.
