I'm trying to determine if my Voodoo 3 graphics card has died or not. Since last week, I'm now stuck with either 16 or 256 colours and a 640x480 resolution. I can't select anything other than this in Display Properties. I've tried reinstalling the drivers and removing the item under Display Adapters in the Device Manager, but none of this has helped.
Is it possible that the Voodoo 3 graphics card has died? A friend has suggested to me on the phone that it sounds that one of the RAM chips may have blown on it, which is what could be causing the display limitations. Assuming the card had died, would it possible for the card to work partly (i.e. offer limited colours and only one resolution) or if it had died would the display be guaranteed to fail altogether? Is this a hardware or software problem?
Please see this question for more information about my problem and what I've attempted to do to solve it:
Thanks in Advance,
