Voodoo* 3 card does not work.
Some Intel® 810 chipset family-based motherboards have a way to disable the onboard graphics in the system BIOS, however many do not. Most motherboards do have a BIOS setting to change the primary graphics adapter to the PCI video card, which should allow PCI video cards to work properly. This will not disable the integrated graphics adapter, instead, it will set it to work as the secondary adapter for multi-monitor support. If multi-monitor support is not desired, the Intel® 810 chipset family graphics driver can be disabled (in software) in Device Manager.
Follow these steps to get a 3dfx Voodoo* 3 3000 PCI video card to work on an Intel 810 chipset-based system:
- Leave the Intel 810 chipset drivers installed.
- Reboot the system and go into the BIOS setup.
- Change the primary display to PCI.
- Save settings and exit.
- Power the computer off.
- Install the Voodoo 3 card into a free PCI slot.
- Plug the monitor into the Voodoo 3 card.
- Restart the system.
- When Windows* is starting it will show new hardware detected, click Cancel.
- Insert the Voodoo 3 CD and cancel out of install.
- Open the Control Panel.
- Open Display.
- Click the Settings tab.
- Click Advanced.
- Click Adapter tab.
- Click on Change.
- Click Next, then click Display for a list of drivers in a specific location, and then click Next.
- Click on the Have Disk button.
- Browse to the 3dfx* Voodoo 3 CD and the Win9x\Driver directory.
- Click on Voodoo3.inf and click OK.
- Click OK to install.
- When the driver is installed, click OK to reboot the system.
- After the system reboots, it may detect an Unknown Monitor. Follow the dialog to install the monitor. This is important in order to get resolutions higher than 640x480.
