    After installing windows XP on an old P2 350 I can't find any drivers for my Monster 3d. Is this card dead? I hate to give it up, it was a nice card. I have a new 1800XP and TNT2. I've got to upgrade that card to keep up with the new board.

    i'm pretty sure driver support for that card is nil, XP will support it as display only but as for other more advanced functions your most likely out of luck. You might try voodoofiles.com and see if they have anything that people have made themselves like they did for the voodoo drivers, but its a long shot, sorry man.

    Yes Qumahlin is unfortunately right. I have got a Diamond Monster 3D card (4mb Ram) -- it is an old card, I know! :D

    As yet, Windows XP do not like the card and on searching the Diamond website (www.sonicblue.com) -- there does not seem to be any mention about it being supported for Windows XP. I did send an email to support about it. I will let you know what happens....

    I own 2 Monster 3D II, I know there are various drivers available, some with D3D, others with Glide and OpenGL...
    I didn't tried them as I don't use my 2 boards anymore, but find some drivers for yourself, they should do the trick I guess, good luck !
