I have Asus p6t ws prof , core i7 920 2,67 Ghz.
I install Win xp pro 32 bits.

I connect my agp2pci adapter + Voodoo 5 6000 3700A card on PCI-X (66mhz)
I install V Control 1.82b + koolsmoky drivers

When i run V.control, it doesn't start ( the hourglass next to mouse of win xp pro spin and after nothing ).
It doesn't appear in System Tray.

When i test with my gigabyte P35-DS4 motherboard on PCI 33 Mhz , Vcontol Work with same drivers ( koolsmoky ).

My Asus motherboard don't accept Vcontrol but the v5k6 card full functional with 3dmark2001se ...

Who want to resolve my problem ?
I want to o/c my v5k6 card on my asus motherboard.
How can i do ?

Thanks in advance

Well most likey you killed your card by forcing it to work in an unlisted motherboard:

Scroll down to the Mobo compabillity list, it's all there really what works and what does not.

My advice is to read the Voodoo5 6000 know hows page I made that shows all Voodoo5 6000 compatable motherbaords, but it seems you did not give yourself the time to read this, since you went and used that unlisted mobo out of the blue.

For this website I just added that Compabillity Mobolist and V6K Know hows to this page:

My advice that if youare anew v6K owner and have no idea on hwo to use it with what type of motherboard, oplease take my lists a good read first, here some more important info you need to know when riding the V6K:

Somewhat basic info that describes the PCI-Rework and why it was applied to the card, also some need to know basics.

The Voodoo5 6000 is made to run Glide games even that openGL and Direct3D are supported, it'sctually a collectors item than a card that has to be over clocked and abused... It's not a production card like a GeForce or Radeon is ya know, it's too rare to be abused in any type of order.

Also it is not made to be used in a new-gen system and to be overclocked this IS ASKING for troubles, then you are using the card at own risk and simply you are going fry it, this has sadly happened to a few cards in the past, that shamefully landed in the wrong hands
