Well.. maybe someone here can tellme a possible problem with my sistem...

I'm running Win XP SP1 and a V5 5500.... I'm using AmigaMerlin 3... and DirectX 9.0b... I tried too with DirectX 8.1...

All my glide and OpenGl games works relly cool!!... but my D3D games doesn't work.. Maybe this weekend I back to win98 se.... but.. maybe this forum can be my last hope.. because here r all the developers of the drivers...

When I ran a D3D game.. my pc crash... some horizontal lines shows.. and my pc restar after some minutes.... the message that I get when my pc starts again is that the 3dfxvs.dll file cause the problem...

I tried 3 different drivers... first 3dhq 1.09 beta 4 drivers for xp (this was the only 3dhq drivers that works with glide and opengl)... after this drivers.. I install AM2.5 for XP my problem continues... and I wait for AM3... when this last drivers was release I install it... I clean my registry.. clen my system of 3dfx files.... god... I was working on this cleaning aroun 1 hour.. because I search an eliminate all the drivers an registry keys...

But nothing works... the last time that I reinstall the drivers I saw that win xp change my 3dfxvs.dll and 3dfxvsm files for other differents that comes with AM package... anyway.. I overwrite this drivers in safe mode.. and restart.... I think that this could be my problem.. but don't... I still with problems... I can't run any D3D application...

some idea???.... .. I post this problem in the VoodooFiles forum.. and the tip was that I format my pc.. and reinstall all again... but.. hehe... I think that maybe other solution is possible....

Thnx for all....

can you run the direct3d test in directx diagnosis? (start --> run --> "dxdiag", then to the display tab and press the "test direct3d" button).

all three drivers you tried work for me, under win2k. and they work for most people under winxp too.

perhaps you should do try to uninstall your drivers, remove all files with 3dfx in it, al files with glide in it, and remove all registery keys with 3dfx in it.

I can't do the D3D Test, I saw the same lines

About uninstall drivers, delete files, clean registry, etc.. etc.. etc.... I tried it millions of times and doesn't works... every time that I reinstall drivers I do that... I login in safe mode... delet all the files, clean registry.. and after reboot I install the 3rdparty drivers.... and I still with problems...

Hi all

unknownusermx, welcome.

Try these following:

- Remove Via chip-set drivers and Voodoo driver and reboot the system.

- Download VIA Hyperion 4.49 package for motherboard chip-set optimal configuration (you can grab it here http://www.hwsetup.it/ clicking on mainboard link at left of page and then on VIA link)

- Update the bios of your motherboard with the latest no beta revision.

- Now please go in system bios and turn on disable all components that you do not use like usb or com or lpt ports.

- Verify that AGP slot do not share IRQ with other devices.

- Now install Via Hyperion and reboot.

- Now re-install DirectX9b reboot.

- Finally install AM 3.0 XP following the steps as in the readme file.

Let us know...

Bye bye

Try the standard WindowsXP drivers for the Voodoo 5.
They might lack in performance but you can be sure they work correct under WindowsXP.
If you still have problems then I think you've got a hardware problem.

rename the driver.cab file in the i386 folder and reboot, then reinstall yer drivers. this keeps winblows from walking all over yer newer drivers.

sorry, mate, but I really think you've got a bad card. can you try it in another computer? was it working previously? just a couple questions we haven't covered yet

EDIT: Stupid questions that I can't remeber if were answered at VF: do you have the BIOS set up correctly, with fast writes off and agp 1x/2x?

unknownusermx - go into your 3dfx-AA and change the direct3d FSAA to 'single chip only' then run your Direct 3d benches/games - let us know what happens
