I need help from you gurus. Im new to the video card thing. I recently recieved a voodoo 5 5500. I have upgraded to windows XP and have a pent 3 with 256m Ram. I have already downloaded amigamerlin 3.0 and mesa fx 6.1. However I am having a few problems. When I play Return to castle wolfenstien I get booted after about 2 min with an openGL exploit error. How can I fix this? Also when I play Call of duty my fps is between 6 and 9 this is terrible. Is there any way to improve fps? Lastly I cant get to my voodoo card settings I can get to the mesa settings but after recently formatting my hard drive, I can no longer get to the settings for the voodoo card itself. Do I need to unistall the new drivers and reinstall the original from the disk that came with the card or what??? Please help

Try to reinstall Amigamerlin3.0 over the existing one. I cannot acces the tools when i first install them. When i install the again and i select "repair" it works fine. When MesaFX is installed properly CoD should run pretty good. So be sure you have installed it them right way. --> glide3x.dll in windows/system32 folder
--> opengl32.dll in game folder (C:\Games\CoD)

Gwhiz_3T, welcome to this board.

The best choice for optimal setup and system stability, after video card upgrade, is hard drive formatting and a newer OS installing: in this way only you would get good pc performances and no application errors, like you wrote.
