I am been given a PC and I need to load the video card driver again but I cannot ascertain what the driver is. I have can see it has two 3D fx interactive chips but no other distinct markings. I am assuming it is a VOODOO2 card but which one? How can I determine which driver to use? Is there a diagnostic approach to this? Your assistance will be appreciated as always.

Is there an "F.C.C. ID" on the card?

Does the card with the 3dfx chips on it also have the VGA output? If so, it can't be a Voodoo or Voodoo2 because these cards had to be "daisy-chained" to a different video card. That limits you to Voodoo Rush (which would generally be made up of two cards, a main graphics card with a small 3Dfx daughtercard sitting on top of it), a Voodoo Banshee or a Voodoo3.

I have tried the site and even sent an email but they could not help because they only concentrate on VOODOO3 porducts!

If you are using Win98SE I believe there is some 3dfx drivers on it.
If your using Win98 see if a friend has SE and check.

Take the cards out, if they're relatively new go to this URL,http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/

and type in the FCC ID on the cards, that site is helpful sometimes

Thank you. Went to the website mentioned – identified the video driver (Matronix) and now I am up and running.
