    Can a loose pin on a monster 2 video card be
    reset or is it a futal effort to try? After moving to a new place, I plugged in the cpu. and got no 3dfx profile for games. I pulled the pin back out, (it was pushed in) butt am not sure about how much more damage there is cause it's on the very bottom of the fitting.(of course!)It's the fitting the pass-tru cable plugs-in on then connects to the primary card. Has anyone ever had this problem or know a fix. Thanks, Mark

    do you mean its on the cable or the card, cause both are reperable, though i'm not exactly sure of to whht degree it would be (read: signature). But basically its a matter of getting some needle-nose pliers and pulling on the thing to make it straight as possible

    ------------------
    Just remember, i could be wrong.

    IT'S on the card itself. butt it's not bent, or snapped in half, it is just loose or came unsoldered.It's real hard too tell cause it's on the bottem and hard to see or get at.

    Very difficult to do... If a pin comes out of a video card it I usually just toss it and get a new card. You need to be really good to reattach one of them.
