View Full Version : Genport I/O Error

Once Windows (XP Pro) has fully opened I get a Error message that Says "Genport I/O initialization failure". I can X out that window and proceed without any other problems. I would just like to identify this error. Any help/ advise would be appreciated, Cheers Phil.

Sounds like a videocard problem or videocard driver prob..

When u boot the computer?? While playing a game?

Yes I do have a Voodoo 2 (3DFX) video card.This is in my second/old PC that I have upgraded to Win XP Pro, I remember when I did the OS upgrade I had a hell of of problem getting the card installed. I had tried to locate new drivers for the Voodoo 2 but they don't seem to be available anywhere. Can you help me any more please.

a quick google mentioned its a problem when you are useing 3dfx w2k drivers on XP. i think there is some custom 3rd party drivers advaillable. check the 3dfx fanboy sites.

otherwise change os or change video card.
