Where do you get a graphics driver for an IBM PS/2 77s

At work I just got a hand me down IBM PS/2 77s with a Zenith 17” 1740 High Resolution Color Monitor (26mm). We installed Win 95 on it but can’t adjust the monitor resolution. It’s set at 640X480 and there are only 16 colors. We want a resolution of 1024x780 minimum. Someone said I need a graphics driver for this configuration. The video card in the PC is an S3 SVGA (86c928revE) with 1MB. How can I get a driver for this card?

You need a graphics driver for the graphics card which is in the computer. Where you can get one depends on what kind of graphics card is in the PC.

you could allways try IBM, perhaps they have the driver, if it is a standard graphics adapter.

The following line must be in your system.ini file for any
win95 video adaptor: DISPLAY.DRV=PNPDRVR.DRV
If you will tell me the make an model number of your card I'm sure we can find the driver. It may be already on you system.

The IBM manual says that the PS2 Model 77s has an Enhanced Local Bus Graphics device--I believe on the mother board. Windows 95 doesn't seem to have a driver that works for this board--we tried several. Is there an IBM URL or e-mail address I can go to see if they have a driver?

From what I've read, with you monitor and only 1mg you probably won't have any luck.
However;

It worked! I must apologize to henrie for giving him a poor rating earlier.  At www.scitechsoft.com I was able to download sdd53a and identify the graphics controller (S3 928) and then get the correct driver at www.s3.com  Many thanks, both to henrie and smeebud for their help.
