QuoteOriginally posted by KusaywaRecently purchased a 3DFX Voodoo 5 AGP on ebay for $50. Installed it and it booted and ran fine, until... I tried to play a game. Nothing, just black screen. I rebooted and entered dxdiag. Ran a test on Direct 3D and same thing, freezing directx box. Installed Windows ME with 1.04 reference drivers. Same thing, rotating box in dxdiag would freeze. Does a Voodoo 5 require a certain amount of wattage from the PSU because of the power plug? Usually cards just die? Any other suggestions? THANKS!
QuoteI'm hesitant to pull out the 250W PS and replace with another. After all, did they even make anything over a 250W when this card came out? Could it have lost power over the years, it is an old PS & PC? But why no problems with the Radeon?
