    Default Rescuing a faulty Voodoo 5500.

    Hi folks,

    Hope someone can help. I found a 5500 super close to me and the chap selling it set it up to test it first. After a while he informed me that he was getting visual artifacts. Since he was about two miles away I took my retro rig to him so we could test it in my pc. Same issues. There's visual artifacts straight away, not just in windows.

    I've attached a ton of pics of the card and a few examples of the artifacts. I can't see any obvious damage but I was hoping someone here may be able to help. The only thing that was at all suspect to me is one cap possibly had some residue around it but I can't say it wasn't just dust.

    Thanks all.

    memory problems, if the price is right, it's worth repairing it. If not don't even bother.

    Okay that sucks.

    Just worth a mention if you look it seems like cap 63 may be cracked along the top.

    That doesn't interfere with image , it shouldn't give artifacts.
    Cheers!
