    I own a Voodoo3 3000 card. Recently I changed to XP. Downloaded new (third party) 3dfx drivers and installed them. Problem: slow video performance. For example when you drag a window it leaves a white space behind for a second or so, or sometimes it leaves stripes behind for a while before the screen recovers. Also: when opening a folder it takes a second or so for the icons to "fill in". None of these things occurred before I installed the new drivers.
    Where in XP can I adjust video settings. How to fix this??? What to tweak???
    Thanks for any help.

    Keep trying new drivers. I have a Voodoo 3 3000 on a P2 333 128 megs ram system and it runs fine. Even got GLIDE to work !

    I took me about a week looking and looking for drivers.

    What I ended up doing is using 2 drivers togther. I installed one then copied and pasted the other drivers to the system folder.

    Only overwrite older files............

    Sorry but I cant remember what drivers I downloaded.


    or this page... got all my voodoo drivers for XP here.


    Hope this helps.
