I own an HP computer which I have extensively modified since it came out of the box. The computer is running windows '98 2nd edition, has a Voodoo 3 3000 PCI video card, and over 300 Megs of RAM.
Now I realize that a PCI video card is not as good as an AGP one. The computer has no AGP. I think that I should be able to get better results from my video card than I am getting now. The video is consistently terrible. I have updated the drivers, ensured DirectX compatibility, and in fact, done everything that I can think of.
There is one further thing that I have been unable to accomplish. One of my friends suggested that I may be able to fix my video problem by changing my BIOS settings to the specified by the manufacturer of the video card. There are only two problems with this.
1.) The manufacturer (3dfx) has gone out of business since I bought the card. I cannot seem to find the BIOS setting information anywhere. (and before you ask, yes I did run a google search)
2.) I cannot seem to access my BIOS settings screen. No indicator comes up during a boot asking me to press any sequence of keys to enter setup. I have tried all of the common ones that I can remember.
3.) Hi, Opal!
Anyway, thanks in advance for your insights…
