Recently one of my newer nVidia Graphcs card went bust so I had to fish out my Voodoo3 3000D graphics card from the attic.

I use 1152 x 864 resolution with the nVidia card I had. However, whenever I try to use this resolution with the Voodoo card it doesn't seem to work. I'm running Windows XP by the way.

I would really appreciate the help! Thanks in advance!

I seem to have fixed the problem. Here's what I did if anyone ever has a problem like this. It's really odd how it worked though!

1) In display properties select the settings tab.
2) Select Advanced (A new window pops up).
3) Select the monitor tab.
4) Uncheck the box that says "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display".
5) In the drop down list this will add refresh rates that are apparantly my monitor should not be able to work with.
6) However, upon selecting 100Hz, it seems to work like a charm.

I dunno if this is an ok setting to use coz it may have some adverse effects on the Graphics Card, but hey, if it does go wrong I'm sure I could pick up a decent one for dirt cheap anyways. Hope this helps whoever has a problem like this in the future!
