A few months ago I received a Voodoo 4500 from an e bay seller after waiting almost 3 weeks for it ( that's another story in itself but I still like ebay for old trains ) Anyway I installed the card and got nothing. This was after it sat around my house for about a month while I was putting items together for a new system. I doubled checked all the obvious things and reinstalled the card and I still get nothing when I boot the system. The card has been sitting on my bench now for about a month and it aggravates me that it will not work . I see no signs of damage . It arrived in a nice static proof bag and all indication are that it was brand new never used in that it had no screw marks on the mounting bar. About a day or so ago I installed it again after I unplugged it's fan and now I got just the letters at the top of the screen when the system boots. Does anyone have any suggestions ? Maybe i am missing something ? Please don't say anything about returning it ! Trust me it is the last over ($50.00) dollar computer item I will ever buy from ebay.
