Problem with Monster3d and 3dblaster

I have just recently installed a monster3d into my existing
system, which uses 3d blaster for 2d/3d.  I have the newest
drivers for both cards.  Whenever I try to run a game using
the Monster card I get a blank screen with some little lines
at the bottom.  The computer isn't freezing though because I can still do commands(like shutdown).  I have tested it using mojo.exe and it works there.

Is there an IRQ conflict?
Does your bios support this card?

What game are you trying to run?  It is possible that you need a "patch" for that game.

No irq conflict ( at least windows95 says so ) NO game runs
using the monster card (even the ones that came with the card )

The problem is that you have two different 3d chipsets in the computer.  If the game is dirext X it will try to use both chipsets. The same is true for the OpenGL games. your bet bet if you want the best game performance is get a cheap 2d card and remove the 3d Blaster. Or at least see if there is a way to disable the 3d on the 3d Blaster.  There shouldn't be an IRQ conflict because the Monster 3d does not use an IRQ.

After calling tech support, I found that it was a memory conflict.
Now it works, I found a utility that allows you to select which
card to use for direct3d.

Monitor input from a computer is usually nothing special.  In this instance it prevented anyone from using the computer.  This was a preconfiguration that didn't work.
