you're going to need ANOTHER video card to "boot" with installed at the same time the voodo card is. any old PCI VGA card will do here.

Can it be an onboardgraphiccard? Because my other card is an AGP Card.

probably not, since your ONBOARD video card is most likely an AGP card too! you really need a motherboard with NO onboard video to do a BIOS rewrite properly to an AGP 3dfx card anyways. try to find a PCI elcheapo card from a friend or something.....

Hello !

For Banshee & Voodoo3
on this web page
http://www.v3info.de/english/html/downloads.shtml
you will find a recovery disk and the EXACT procedure to recover from a failed BIOS Update.

For Banshee only
ftp://ftp.guillemot.com/video/exe/PHX/
This is for Guillemot Maxi Gamer Phoenix, but should work for most Banshee boards because these are generic BIOS & drivers from 3dfx
bgp9x110.exe creates a bootdisk that is able to revive a banshee board, but WARNING : it contains a TSR BIOS for SGRAM (not SDRAM)

latest 3dfx official Banshee ROM BIOS & TSR BIOS
http://www.geocities.com/bansheedrivers/page4.html

TSR BIOS is a Terminate & Stay Resident small DOS program that contains a BIOS image and loads it so that you see the DOS screen again

Best regards
