Hi.
Recently found out that when using vga output picture is fine. But look's like that games doesn't found 3d support. Thus far I only tried Black Mirror II. It works okay with t61 own screen. I think this is driver related issue? Intel driver update cookie said that I have manufactures own drivers. Which I do :)

T61
Intel gma965
Middleton bios
Win7 64bit
Latest I think? drivers for gpu.

I think you'll find most 3d support for intel gpu is very limited. They are good reliable systems when it comes to things like power consumption, temp, and reliability, but if you're looking to do gaming, then a dedicated GPU would be much better.

I'm not sure if W7 always installd directX drivers, but if not the you'll have to do it manually. I'm on XP so I always install directX after clean install of the OS and the video drivers.

if it's not that then the game you're trying to run actually requires you to have ATI/nVidia GPU.
