I have a somewhat unusual problem with using the Voodoo3 3000 PCI video
card with my Dell system and QRTP with Photon. When I first installed
it, it detected and worked great for about a month or so. After this
time, I found that I started getting some lines that would follow the
cursor and then later, the driver would just not work (ie. it would lock
up the system if I went into Photon in normal mode - safe mode still
works ). The machine dual-boots with Win98 and when I go into there
now, the display shows white lines appearing in a semi-grid pattern,
which would mean to me that the card is probably fried.
This is the second identical card to have fried in this fashion, and so
I am wondering if anyone has had this experience with the Voodoo card.
Is it possible that the banshee driver is driving the card too hard or
is using an unadvisable refresh rate, such that after a certain period
of time it gives out?
Thanks in advance.
