(assuming you have Windows XP)
Try this :
http://www.s3graphics.com/en/drivers/legacy_software_archive.aspx#id_420drv

Version:6.14.10.0033-13.94.33 WHQL CERTIFIED for 8D04

But you have to know that even if this updated driver provides GL 1.2+, you card may still be way too slow for anything playable.

EDIT : apparently, this game can not work with your video card.
Unless you have a laptop, try to buy any video board from ATI or Nvidia. Even an ancient geforce will do, check the system requirements for your game.

EDIT2: GL 1.1 only for this card : http://www.kludx.com/card.php?card=21
Search for GL1.2+ here :

Thanks for reply. I already tried downloading the 6.14.10.0033 but it still doesnt work. I guess i have to buy a graphic card driver at computer shop? as in bringing my cpu there.

You mean just "buy a new graphic card" (drivers comes included in general, or from the card make website).

When you fixed it was it for this game? I have to agree with Zbuffer, if you want to play Secret of the Solstice you need a better graphics card. I had a similar problem not too long ago and was better off switching to an NVIDIA card. You will not be wasting your money.
