Is there a modem and/or a router on the end of your fibre network?

Does you PC have a network (rj45/ethernet) port?

And are you really using Win-ME at this time in history? Using that is simply asking fr trouble if you take it online into www (wicked world web).

What is the purpose of using this ancient system?
Widows-ME was one of the worse windows version.
If you're lucky to get it connected, it could be used as a file storage system at best.
Current Browsers will not support ME and if there is any old browser running on ME it will not handle todays HTML code well if not at all.

Perhaps a Linux OS version could work.

Does not Win-me include a basic video driver as per norm?

Meanwhile if you browse the web using the fiollowing string/search words

generic video driver windows me

you’ll find all manner sources, including from MS

What are the PC specs?
Video card brand/model?

Look on the manufacture support page for possible ME drivers

Following on from sluc's response

Presumably you can already see a display on a monitor attached to this computer? If so then use Device Manager to discover what make/brand the video card is?

Similarly to discover the make/model of the motherboard; or do you know the brand.make of the computer itself - whose name is on it?

And as previous a search as suggested in my #1 will bring you assorted driver options - including whatever MS have to offer. And I seem to recall that there is an option win-me (etc.) to allow windows to search the web for suitable drivers; have you gone that route?

the fact is that I can not change the resolution of the monitor, I have not installed any video card, only the one that is in the motherboard, I wanted to know if and how you can change the resolution. that's why I ask for a video driver.
thank you

the pc is an hp dx 2200 but as standard it does not have windows me, so I cannot download the original drivers from the site.

Ah... This may be what you're looking to do:

The Dummies series of "how to" are often quite well put together and a ewesfool reference - even for those who gno wot they're doing...

The range of options will necessarily be limited...

Likely because the current drivers are the basic/default VGA windows set?

So do you know (as per sluc) either the make of video card installed - if there is one; or the make/model of the motherboard; or even the brand of the computer?

Equally link below (which refers to win 7 and later, but applied equally to earlier windows versions if memory serves me aright, and it's been a while since I even saw an ME system - let alone play with one) it gives you three different approaches to securing (hopefully) later/better drivers for the video card/adapter (if there is an add in card etc...). The Device Manager approach enables you to discover the actual video card installed and thus possibly driver updates (from an archive no doubt at this time).

I would avoid sites such as driver update and simila,' as frequently they' plagued/infested with assorted add in items too; none of which you neither need nor want.

And from wherever you get the drivers (if available) go the with manual not proffered/automatic option; and watch for and uncheck all pre checked boxes - apart from the one for the drivers only. That way you avoid bundled junk and more...

Just noted you post the make/model of the computer.

That model seems to have generally arrived with XP and later... I doubt there are ME drivers...

How does it come to have ME installed?

If you run the device manage routine as above, and discover the actual video card details... - you may have a chance to find drivers directly from the card's support site?

I'd either upgrade it to XP at least (and don't go anywhere near the www with it...); or even win-7 and likewise be wary of the www with that version; or install a variant of linux

I don't see any Win ME driver for Graphics card in the PC you mentioned.
Does the application for the Machine only run on windows ME?

Any specifics on the Machine app?

The hp pages show it as shipped with XP, and possibly the dreaded Vista later. So nothing for ME.
