I have asked this question previously (3DFX Problem), however the solution has not proven to be stable so I am starting the discussion again.
I've started this question at 80 points as thats all I have at the moment. If I get a good answer, that is one that is stable and explains WHY this conflict is occuring, I will increase the points awarded to whatever I have at time it is answered and has been stable for 7 days. So this will be at least another 40 points or so.
I bought an Orchid Voodoo card a few months back and have had nothing but trouble. It works in DOS based games if you close down Windows95 first. Under Windows it works about one time in 20-30 attempts. It also gives an error in GLQuake (glwCreateContect Failed) and won't run. This is very frustrating so any help will greatly appreciated.
Note: Pentium 166, 64 Meg RAM, AWE32 card, 4Meg Virge graphics card. DriveSpace 3 compressed disks. MS Sidewinder Pro. RadioTrack FM tuner card.
Also known is that Flight Simulator 98 works perfectly every time. Also Fatal Racing works every time. However every other Windows based game and all the demos from 3DFX lock up every time.
