You have an MSI MS-6168 motherboard I presume?
The onboard Voodoo 3 had either 8MB or 16MB of VRAM.
So there's nothing wrong, you just got a cheaper version of the motherboard I think

From what I know a Voodoo3 board with only 8Mb RAM is a Voodoo3 1000. A lot of them were OEM in old Compaq na Gateway systems.

You can get any Voodoo BIOS you want from Stanto's site.
http://welcome.to/3dfxbios

Your core speed is 157MHz. The Voodoo3 2000 was clocked @143MHz and the Voodoo3 3000 was clocked @166MHz. I wonder why your core speed is different. If you flash your BIOS with a normal Voodoo3 2000 BIOS you will bring your speed down to 143MHz. I don't know if you can flash the BIOS of an onboard video card or not. If you can, use the flies from Stanto's site because I know they are all good files including the flash utilities. The site above has several new BIOS files for all the Voodoo3 cards the newest being 2.15.11

Good luck.

Don't flash mate! Voodoo3 gets very little to no benefit from bios flashing anyway, plus you won't be risking your m/b - card combo

Trying to flash a BIOS, which doesn't belong directly to your integrated V3, can be very risky.

Is this your machine?



This is one of PB computers with onboard Voodoo3 - "Packard Bell - Club 800P" (MSI-6168 with V3-8MB, 143MHz / Intel PIII-800MHz)

back to Voodoo 3: Does your motherboard support TV-out? According to 3Dfx tools it should be supported. But I can not find conexant encoder or SVHS connector...
