Firstly, what drivers are you using for the 3500?
Definately do a fresh install of Windows 98 SE, it's a lot more stable than 1st ed.
Personally speaking, with my 3500, when I don't check 'don't use my monitor' the display on the monitor is all red and pulled to one side anyway, so I don't think you'll have much luck in displaying both correctly.
Good luck anyway....

I have original drivers from CD. Which do you prefer or suggest? At the beginning(when I install drivers on fresh installed Win98) I had monitor all red and pulled to one side with unchecked checkbox as you said but then that checkbox box started to disappear and I get blank monitor ???. I can't use my monitor and tv at the same time. I don't need to display picture on monitor very correctly I just need to see the monitor becouse I have TV in other room, and this is a little bit hard to run movies. I'm using PAL BDGHI signal type. I'm from Europe - Slovenia.

Thank you!

Personally, I use the last official 3dfx beta drivers (Non-US), and I don't have any issues with the monitor.
Download form here: http://www.falconfly.de/voodoo3-3500.htm
and look for one of these two drivers:
18 Apr 2000
3dfx Voodoo3 3500 V1.05.00b
or
08 Aug 2000
3dfx Voodoo3 3500 V1.05.00b3

Huh I tried but I still have problems. I have no more ideas what to try. I checked cable connection betwen CPU and TV and it works fine. Then I also checked TV input and it works great. I have reinstalled my CPU and installed Win 98 Second edition as you suggested me. I downloaded drivers from http://www.falconfly.de/voodoo3-3500.htm and still no succes. At the beginning there was a picture on TV but now I get blank screen. I opened pod to check connection and contacts, but it seem to work fine. I have no ideas what to do. Please rescue me!!

Maybe there is problem with TV out on Voodoo3 3500. But how to check that?
I have this card for 1 month and sometimes I just think that I made a mistake when I bought it.

Do you have any idea what should I do? (I'm using Composite connection type)!

by the way: is composite on same wires as s-video? I will try with s-video, maybe it will work.

Please send me any suggestions from you. More heads more knowledge.

btw:sorry for my bad english.

Thanks!

There is not too much more assistance I can offer you.
Composite is not the same as s-video. S-video has a higher output quality. That is what I use when I'm running emus and all the rest. Make sure your tv supports s-video, otherwise you won't get any picture...
