Default 3DFX Voodoo 3 3000 AGP, Freezing, Crashing, Win98IF. - 02-14-2013, 10:29 | posts: 4

hello all

System hangs after about 1-3 minutes of use. It just freezes without powering off. Sometimes audio continiues playing,
sometimes it doesn't. I've tried to play (NFS 2, NFS 3, Quake 2, Quake 3, Half-Life), Using Windows's safe mode doesn't alter the situation.

Curiously enough, all 3D games without 3DFx and 3DMark 99 & 2000 work just fine !!!
(Revenant, Might & Magic 6-7 in Direct 3D!, all NFS in sowtware mode, and of course the DOS games work fine)

I reinstalled Windows several times original Win98 and Win98IF

My config:
CPU: Pentium II 233 MMX (Slot 1) Klamath
Mainboard: Rhino2LX Intel 440LXEX 2A69JO09
Sound: Creative AWE64
Video: 3DFX Voodoo 3 3000 AGP 16MB
(many drivers Official/Omega/AmigaMerlin and more)

Power: 300W
System: Win98IF

My BIOS settings:




add PnP OS Installed "YES"
add AGP Aperture Size "64"

my VIDEO:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eikk...ature=youtu.be
Later I made ***8203;***8203;the video with all my freeze games + i later test Unreal, Carmaggedon...

What's the problem may be? Broken Voodoo3, mainboard or AGP Slot?

ps.
After two or three weeks, I'll try install VooDoo 3 2000 AGP.

Thanks.

Very strange, so the system doesn't hang in safe mode or D3d/OpenGL games, just glide?

that's just bizzare.

im going to put it down to either the motherboard or PSU, as you have tried the voodoo in a different system.
