slow video with voodoo 3000 in XP

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. How to fix this??? What to tweak??? Thanks for any help.

I don't think it's to do with your video card or drivers, more likely to be the animated effects active in xp. If you go to >Settings >System >Advanced >Visual Effects and try turning off some of the animations. It speeded up my Athlon 1200 / Voodoo 3 3000 no end. I must add though that it never effected any games!!

Good luck, and a happy new year.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
