I need the jumper settings for this card.
Its a 16 bit ISA VLB card.
All I really need is a explanation of the term "+RAS". Jumper 8 reads "J8:C:+RAS". I figured out "C:" means CLOSED.
And the term "Fast Clk". Jumper 10 reads "J10:0:FAST CLK". "O:" means open.
Jumper 1 has no labels. What is jumper 1 for?
What does the following mean?
X4 RP3 X16 RP5
X16 RP2 X4 RP4
I assume they have somthing to do with the empty memory sockets, but what? There are four rows of resistors between the sockets labled RP5 RP4 RP2 RP3. Actually, rows RP4 and RP2 are empty. Does this mean I should use X4 and X16 memory chips?
How come Trident says they dont make video cards when I always see Trident Video cards for sale in computer magazines!

First off, Trident doesn't make vid cards just the chipsets that other companies use on their own cards, Trident also provides very generic drivers for those chipsets. +RAS has to do with video memory timings, 80 or 60 nanosecond usually.
Fastclock has to do with the overall speed of the VLBUS the card is operating at CPU Speed or CPU Speed+33MHZ (PCI standard speed)JP1 refers to the monitor being used normally factroy preset for non-interlaced mode but can be set for use with interlaced monitors (not recommended). The 1MB 2MB does indeed refer to the type of memory, many VLbus cards came with the option of using VRAM or WRAM.
