Question about 3dfx Voodoo3 3500 TV (16 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Lost AV cable in a move

Howdy. Lost my AV cable in a move and cannot use my PC which has the Voodoo3 3500 TV card. I purchased and installed a new graphics card, but it's not POSTing. Tried the card in another PC, same thing. Managed to get it working in the other PC by first removing it, powering up with built-in graphics and disabled the built-in through the BIOS settings. Boom, it worked. However, since the PC in which I need to install the card has no built-in graphics and since I do not have the AV cable to change my BIOS settings to enable me to use my new card, I would like to know if anyone knows where I can find the pin I/Os of the AV cable, so I can rig a VGA adapter and at least be able to gain access to my PC that way. Can anyone help?

Hi,

Radio Shack have all sorts of cables.

E-mail Voodoo3 technical support for a cables

Try a cheap PCI VGA card on your PC , then instal the AV after it; it might not stand alone.

Good luck

After installing new ATI HD4670 video card on my Gateway zx6810 I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black


Hello

Is this new video card the only video source on the PC (i.e. there is no other VGA connections on the PC)?

Without knowing the make and model of the PC, I will list the most common issue when replacing the video card in a PC.

1. Connect the monitor to each available VGA connection and boot the computer - to see if any VGA output is working

2. When you find a working VGA output, go into BIOS and change the VIDEO settings to either allow BOTH the onboard and add in video OR allow the add in video only. Save the changes and turn the computer off.

3. Move the video cable to the add in video card, turn the computer on and see if the BIOS is using the new Video card

What do TV cards do when installed in computers


TV cards fit into PCI or PCIe slots depending on the bus speed of the card and the motherboard. TV cards provides a port for CAT-V cables. With TV cards, you can watch local TV stations and or cable TVs in your PC. Connection is through a CAT-V cable.

Cable Required to conect to TV


Your graphic card has two digital TV outputs, so all you need to do is to purchase a DVI cable and connect your PC to your TV (unless your PC is close enough to 'borrow' the cable from your PC, and you're only doing this on a one-time basis. If your TV doesn't have DVI input, you can purchase a DVI > VGA adapter; but most TV's today have DVI input. The next step is to output your sound to your surround sound system, or your TV will be silent. If you don't have any sound output slots left to plug into, you can purchase a 'Y' - adapter for your speaker port, or else if your PC has a second speaker jack on the front, you could just use that since you're only going to watch temporarily anyway.

I've run a cable from my PC to my TV, and used a 'Y' - adapter on my speaker output, leading to my surround sound amplifier, but since it draws my available wattage to my computer speakers on my computer down quite a bit, I simply unplug the cable leading to the surround sound amplifier when I'm not using it.

Hope this will FixYa.

TV signal lost


Have you had a look at the cords? Is there any damage to the hardware itself? Maybe there is something else wrong. Tried running virus scans? I know it's a long shot but it's amazing at what viruses do to your machine.
