    Can Anyone repair a Voodoo3 2000 Graphics Card? Cap pulled from PCB, Maybe broken traces

    Title says it all. See pics in my eBay auction.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/132469722595

    I would like it completely recapped, and if possible fix broken traces if there are any.

    I really don't want to sell this, if it can be saved, I would love to use it in my Win 98SE Rig.

    I talked to a guy online, but he was asking $40.00. That doesn't sound right, but I don't know really.

    USA based would be preferred.

    Cap replacement is usually not done as just one, you replace them all. These are surface mounted parts, if that makes a difference in prices. There may be different tools for this type of job, or perhaps different replacement components.

    dude, you're awful at this, you didn't even tried.

    Not like it mattress, but it probably is not a good idea to lay the board on those metallic bags. They are conductive on the outside, anti-static on the inside. Essentially a faraday cage for any component inside of it.

    And yeah what Trip said if you are replacing one you might as well replace them all.

    he spends hundreds on scarves, of course he's a fag and then ChuChu Flamingo preserved the aftermath in a plastic case making sure it wasn't exposed to unstable air
    You're just upset that you're too goddam stupid to understand the games and whiff infinites.

    I doubt it's the caps tbh. Voodoos get incredibly hot and IMO they should have had a fan on them.





    In with the real hardware, out with the bootlegs......who is this I wonder?

    Why bother with a Voodoo card!? Just buy a GeForce 2 Ti or Ultra.

    Around 80 to 100 working. That's what they go for from Bulgaria, where most are sold from on ebay. I sold it as broken and picked up a LeadTek geforce 4.

    I wanted a Voodoo for playing games that support the Glide API, since there are a lot of good ones. But I also wanted to play return to castle wolfenstein, which isn't ideal for a Voodoo card.

    Some day I will get both, but for now the leadtek runs 95% of what I want to play perfectly on Win 98SE.
