I had to reinstall Windows ME. I now have only 16 colours. I have an IBM with a S3 Trio 3d on board video chip and what looks like a PCI AGP card. I recall that the S3 video was the main video. How do I make sure that I install the right driver?

Here is a link to the "S3 Trio 3D/2X video driver package 1.00.28 "

Did both things. The driver does not appear to be the correct one. When I use it I get a yellow triangle and an exclamation mark. The video adapter is a S3 Trio 3d on board. There is no 2X. None of the drivers that are on the computer seem similar to the S3 Trio 3d. The computer is an IBM 6862N3U . The IBM site only has NT drivers and the download site did not work/have them. Any other ideas?
