Hello,
It was a mess to find a driver for my vooddo 2 which run under XP but during the installation I've got a nasty error message telling :
"Failure : there's a conflict between the inf and the ini files".

Could someone help ?

I've got a geforce 5600 and a processor AMD Athlon XP 3000 +

Hi pingorles, welcome here.

Your Windows XP does not well execute Voodoo2 identification - like multimedia device without custom driver of course - so you must:

1)Running all Voodoo2 driver unistall tools in OS Control Panel --> Installed Applications;

2)Remove Voodoo2 references or generic multimedia device without custom driver in OS Device Manager.

Then reboot Windows and please verify that

1)Your card is detected like multimedia device;

2)Windows asks you for device driver.

Well, now you can click on Cancel button and, at last, run FastVoodoo2 4.0 XP setup file when os boot is completed.

That's all and good luck,


Bye Bye (ciao Nightbird )

Hello ! thanks for the answer. In fact, I've done what you told me a couple of time but always with the same error message.
I've even gone in the registry editor to suppress every key related to 3 dfx.
But the problem remains. In fact, it's the same for other packages of driver (for the voodoo2).
I've tried to perform an install with the device manager too, specifying the location where the file are (folder driver2000 where the file voodoo2.inf is, after decompressing the rar package which is named setup) but then the device manager answers it can't find any driver for my material.
So I'm stuck.
If anybody else has an idea about it, for exemple which ini file could be in conflict with the inf file...

What's your Voodoo 2 ?
Is your card correctly installed (hardware) ?

My card is a diamond monster III D 4MB and is correctly plugged.

In fact the error message come just after the file have been extracted at the beginning of the installation.

The installation is not aborted and I can see a new device installed (non signed driver indeed) for a sound and game controller.

The file are copied in the directories and the values are added in the registry but after reboot, my card remain in other peripheral, mutimedia and video controller, with a yellow sign and the mention that the driver have not been installed for this peripheral.

So you tried also to update your driver manually via the "update driver" in the device manager ?

Yes, that's what I've done but I ask me a question : is it really a "voodoo2" type card. What if it's a "voodoo1" type ? are there any XP driver for that type of card I can try ?
