Well, I don't remember this happening before. I have two 12 MB Guillemot Maxi-Gamers connected in an SLI configuration. I recently re-installed Windows NT 4 (SP6). As part of this re-installation I downloaded and installed the latest (3.02.02) version of the Voodoo 2 drivers from I installed the drivers from my Administrator account, checked the Display properties tab for 3dfx Voodoo, and saw the familiar "Detected!".

I saw a good bit of video weirdness in OpenGL games (UT, Q3A) in my user account. Checked the Display properties and saw "Not available" for SLI. At first I thought a card had crept out of its slot, but no. Went back to Administrator and saw "Detected!" there.

What's up?


I take what n0e says way too seriously

Devices are not user dependent, so I don't see why it would do that.

Why are you using the computer from a User account? I assume you're the only one using this computer? I always logon as admin.
