Hi

I have an V5 5500 AGP and an ASROCK M266A, i buy this motherboard because this work with V5 (see this article: www.pcgameshardware.de/3dfx-Voodoo-Hardware-255488/Specials/3dfx-Voodoo-Retro-Special-1246582).

But, i have some problems to start 3D games after i install any driver. Using the Windows native Driver, all Direct 3D games work fine (slowly), but after install an Amigamerlin or SFFT driver, i have the error below.






Any idea to solve this? My voodoo is damaged or its a driver problem?


PS: Into Windows, the V5 works fine... How i disable one of VSA100 to teste then?

Hi JosiasMartins, you're welcome here. The behaviour you've shared with us looks as an issue on hardware side (memory chip?).

In my humble opinion, when you're requiring high performance, using tuned settings by the device driver, your Voodoo5 graphics card shows off this problem.

Can you try the card using a new (or certainly reliable) PSU? Another question: can you mount the Voodoo5 on another compatibile motherboard and RAM? Furthermore, are correctly working both cooling fans of the graphics chips? Can you improve the card cooling adding temporarly an big external fan?

I think card is defective, but I'd like rule out the effects related to an defective mobo and/or PSU, or to the temperature.

Bye bye

Both coolers are fine, and the temperature still in 32C (i use a IR Thermometer).
I have tested using a Gigabyte GA-8ISMLH, another motherboard with a Universal AGP with 3.3V support and i have the same error.

This problem occurs in WinXP and 98 using the last official drive.

If i configure the driver to "Single Chip Mode", the card works fine and stable!

Hi JosiasMartins, ok.

This looks as a hardware issue, but I'm not sure a VSA-100 to be defective. I.e. we could have a problem with the on board power stage or, if we should be lucky, with the system power supply unit.

Let me know.

Bye bye
