I purchased a HP Omnibook XE3 that has a S3 Inc. Savage/IX w/MV graphics chip set. It does not run a CAD-software (Altair HyperWorks) that requires OpenGL. Neither HP nor S3 nor the software manufacturer could help me.
I have the same issue, only I have a Gateway Solo 5300 with the same video setup. I need ANY drivers that are available! According to the S3 website, this video card supports OpenGL but no one has any drivers for it. Please help!
Actually, I finally made it to the site last night and installed the drivers but it’s now worse off than before. I can’t even see Quake3 Arena, I can hear it, but I can’t see it. I think the problem might be that Win M.E. protects the system files and does not allow them to be replaced. Everytime I tried copying ‘openg32.dll’, or re-name it, it would automatically replace it again and put the new file in an sfc/archive folder. Any suggestions?

I have HP running ME with same card as yours.
I also downloaded the referenced drivers but can’t get them working. I get a half inch display when I play game. How did you get new drivers to work. Did you keep the Opengl32.dll that came loaded in ME?
I got the same half inch display at first. What I did was reinstall the drivers the way ‘Need-a-new-card’ said to do on his website. First I downloaded and installed the OpenGL drivers. Then, I created a folder and extracted the UXS3GL drivers into it. Windows automatically found and tried to install drivers that seemed to be the ones that I downloaded, however, they didn’t work until I specified the directory where I exctracted the drivers. As for the OpenGL drivers, I tried to make changes to the drivers to see if that would work but M.E. kep reversing the changes. Ultimately, I think I just need to specify the right directory for the video drivers. Hope this helps!
