Re: cant install voodoo3
It means that the refresh rate is set too high or too low for the monitor, you can adjust this in the system BIOS, or use the onborad graphics, right click on the screen, select properties, go to settings, advanced, and change the refresh rate from there.

Good Day sir, try to check the CMOS/BIOS setup, and go look for Initial Display First, there are several options, Onboard / AGP / PCI. OR, after you remove your AGP, clear the CMOS/BIOS setup. find the jumper wire near the battery this sets your motherboard to factory setup and uses the onboard VGA. test the pc without the AGP.
hi , seems called a d'E/S cable which is proprietary - I would say you would have buckley's hope (little or no hope) of finding one
Boxed "New old stock" items of retail cards incl cable are still pricey at over $100
Hi, Im guessing that your motherboard has an intergrated video card & you installed the 9600 card into the opened AGP slot on the board. If you would have listed the model number of your motherboard I would't have to guess. What you need to do is enter your bios & make a change so your bios loads the AGP slot & not the intergrated video card. How to get into your bios? As soon as you turn on the Pc press the Delete key every two seconds. If your system fails to load the bios than you will need to try some of the others F keys. Let the PC finish loading. Re-start the PC. As it starts up try the F1 key every two seconds. Continue in this manner using these other F keys untill your system boots into the bios. F2, F10 or F12. One will work for you. Once in the bios use your manual if you have one. You are looking for Video display. You want the bios to load the AGP slot first, this will disable the intergrated video automatically. Your Pc will now see your 9600 video card & you will be able to load it's software. If the 9600 uses ATI's software you should update the Radeon software by going to ATI/AMD & update your video software with the latest drivers. Click the link I have posted below to upgrade your Radeon 9600XT card. Good idea to save the link. http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
Fill in the needed information to get to your driver software.
