Re: 3Dlabs Wildcat VP880
If it is specifically the Wilcat VP880 that you want, the key technologies are hardware cursor, OpenGL, TV - as OpenGL is a standard, any of the current equivalents would be compatible. Look at the NVISIA Quadro range of Workstation cards.
This card, I own one, is obsolete. Unless you find soneone who is planning to change from AGP to PCIe graphics, I don't think you will find one anywhere. 3dLabs sold the Wildcat line to Creative. Perhaps that route will profit you. I assume the usual searches have come a cropper.
I would sell mine to you should I build my HTPC. It is a mite noisy for that purpose.

the GPU doesn't have a BIOS. BIOS stands for Basic Input / Output System. It's what your computer hardware looks at right after the POST. (Power-On Self-Test). Flashing the BIOS can be risky, if there is a power outage while it's updating or doesn't completely update your motherboard will be useless. I highly do not recommend flashing the BIOS. What I would do is update the driver. Keep in mind that only certain graphics cards work on certain machines. Intel CPUs only work with Nvidia GPUs. and AMD CPUs only work with AMD cards. It's hard to pinpoint your problem because I'm not looking at the computer.

What are your symptoms? What happened? Did you just start getting the No Display- Check cable message? Loss of video is one of 3 things.
1) Bad or loose video card - But you get normal sounds (you can hear
the Windows sound when starting up) and normal beeps. Do you get the normal sounds when starting up? If you do not then video is most likely not your problem.
2) Bad or weak power supply unit (PSU). Sometimes it appears that a
power supply unit is working, but in reality it is not getting enough
power, usually due to some bad capacitors (caps) inside. If you swap
out the power supply you have to put one with the same or greater
output watts in it. Output watts can be found on a sticker on the
outside of the PSU.
3) Failed or failing motherboard (mobo). This is usually caused by
failing capacitors (caps). Caps look like little soda cans and they
should be perfectly flat on top and not bulging or swollen or leaking
anything. Visually inspect those. A bunch of computer manufacturers and
power supply manufacturers got bitten by a company that years ago was
making poor quality (but cheap) capacitors. Seems this company stole
the recipe for the capacitors but didn't quite get the mixture right
and after 2-3 years these things started failing. I have seen several DELL's with this problem.
So in my opinion you could have either a weak or bad power supply or a failed
or failing mobo. What is happenning is that the computer does not make
it through the Power On Self Test (POST) and that is why you would hear no
beeps and get no video. SO I believe that you have situation 2 or 3
mentioned above. That is where I would start looking for your problem if the clarification request from dickcanfixit does not help.
there is another fuse link in the system and you will need to find owners service manual for that car that has wiring diagram brake down
some places to look behind the radio itself, where all the wires connect or the juction point, it maybe near the switch area or near the area where the short curcuit accerd.
if you are a good troubleshooter is to have power going to the device and tie one end to power and use the other end to put on the end of the burt wire or short happend.
they have a tool is connect to the ppower and theye is a screwdriver type handle and in the handle of the device is a light and every time you touch a wire and it makes contact the come on when you find the short than the light will not come on and you found the short, than you run a new wire and it is fixed, the tool is under 10.00 dollars
