I have done a clean install of Windows 98 onto this model.  I am only getting 16 colours on my display settings.  My adapter was set up as standard card.  

I was advised that I need to update the video driver.  I searched IBM's web site but the page displaying my model didn't have anything I could download except a txt file.  Can you offer any suggestions?

Thanks Snowguy and tmj883.  I tried the matrox driver from ibm.  When I tried to install it, it told me it couldn't detect any matrox hardware on the computer.

I followed up by doing what I should have done at the beginning:  I opened up the case.  There appears to be an on board video card.    The chip on the motherboard is labeled "S3 Trio 3D NC0BB  86C366".  I was told it was a 4MB card.  

Any follow-up suggestions ??
