Here's what's happening. I built a new Pentium 4 system and my Voodoo 5 5500 AGP will not work. I know this so I asked my friend to give me his Voodoo 5 5500 PCI. I put it in but it will not go past the Voodoo5 5500 PCI Version 1.11 screen. Everything should be fine considering he pulled the card out one of his working systems. This may be poorly written because I'm in a rush but.. I'd appriciate any help, thanks.

Hooked up the power connector?
Pushed the card tightly in the PCI slot?
Monitor okay?

Yes, everything should be fine. I even moved it to a different PCI slot.

The card I was using before is a Voodoo Banshee.

I'm using a 400 watt PSU at the moment. The only thing I'm curious about is the onboard video, could this be a possible problem? It seems I should have said all of this at once lol, sorry.

Does the BIOS have an option for booting from AGP or PCI, if so make sure it is set to the correct type.

I'm not aware if it does or not but I do not think it's relevant. The card I used before installed the Voodoo 5 5500 is a Voodoo Banshee PCI. It worked fine. I'll look, though.

Can you disable the onboard video ?

I cannot figure out how to disable onboard video. There is something in BIOS called Init Display First though, it's set to PCI Slot.

In device manager the onboard video location is PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0.

Hum, a banshee pci works but not a 5500 pci ?
What happens exactly once your system booted and you saw the "Voodoo5 5500 - Version 1.11... 65536K.

I have seen a Voodoo 5500 AGP hang showing the copyright message. but it was down to me having changed the mouse and keyboard (long story invoving a KVM switch). I would check unrelated things to see everything is ok. It might be worth re-installing the banshee to make sure that the machine still boots with the banshee. If it doesn't work with the banshee back in then you have a wierd problem that is not related to the 5500. This might sound a bit strange but this approach fixed my hanging at the BIOS problem with my 5500, it proved to be unrelated to the 5500.

I read the manual and i see "nothing special"

Try to start with only the gfx card in the machine, no sound card, no network card...

And try again the Banshee as SFFT said.
