Refresh problem in XSI 2.02

I recently SoftQuadro my Visiontek Geforce 3 Ti200 graphics card on my dual P3 - 866 workstation as a Quadro DCC. With a display screen area of 1280x1024. But for some reason whenever I maximize the viewport only half the image shows up. Has anyone ecounter this situation. How do i fix it???

probably is because of your vdo card. Geforce 3 has alot of complains.

Before I SoftQuadro the Geforce 3 ti200 all was well in XSI. Actually it was running perfectly til I SoftQuadro the GF into a Quadro DCC.

All is well, I have problems if I tried to use the latest nvidia drivers
right now Im running V23.11

Greg Hess posted this on the SI hardware Mailing list give it a try and see if it helps:

So far I'm using 21.83 driver based on the instructions from Guru3D. I managed to follow nVidia settings except I can't seem to find 'Nview' to set as disabled. After rebooting the PC I'm still getting the same problem with only half the image showing up in the viewport. Can you advise where I can find the 'Nview' settings. Perhaps this is the last key to solve this problem.

i had that problem once, i thought it was my video card but i dont think it was (cause it hasn't happened in a long time), im using a geforce 2. the way i fixed the problem was by removing XSI completey and then re-installing. hope that helps

HEY GUESS WHAT???

here's the quick bastard way how to fix that hahaha it's so cheap and dumb.

1) get poly tool (default 'N')

2) click a random face on your poly object

3) pull new poly corner into the black

4) it should disappear...

if it doesn't work point and laugh at me...

-EAP!

I managed to re-install XSI 2.02 and the problem is still consistant. Does XSI have problems reading SoftQuadro OpenGL acceleration on the GF board.
