Trying to get a Rage LT Pro to work with an older DFI motherboard....


New member
Hi everyone

Someone gave me a Rage LT Pro card they were not using, and I thought I'd swap it in for the even older Matrox Mystique 220 I've got in my bedroom box (I sh## you not.)

My motherboard is a DFI K6BV3+ with an Award BIOS. I can't figure out what is going on, but for some reason the boot screen has these weird black horizontal 'scanlines' that make everything pretty much unreadable, and when it switches into graphic mode (Windows splash screen) I get nasty vertical blue bars overlaid on top of the image.

The PC beeps as it's turned on (long beep - short beep) so something must obviously not be right. But I've played around with the AGP-related settings in the BIOS (changing them one at a time, and changing them back to where they were afterwards) to no effect, and I'm out of ideas by now.

I'd love to be able to use this board, so I was wondering if any of you might be able to help?

TIA :)
Well, I don't have the slightest clue as to what happened, but this thing just started working on its own :confused:.

I can't believe I'm watching smooth full-screen video on a 450-MHz box. Unreal! :evil:

Thanks to anyone that might've read this.
