Police Called Over 11-Year-Old's Science Project 687

Charges aren't being laid against the youth, but it's being recommended that he and his family 'get counseling.' Apparently, the student violated school policies — I'm assuming these are policies against having any kind of independent thought?"

Used to have one of these.
It had exactly the same problem with my standard 15" Planar LCD. I didn't think it was a driver problem, just a shitty integrated graphics (i845G ?). I was trying to put a "real" gfx card inside, but the mobo (made by LiteOn, model NR135 I believe) in my d220 did not have AGP slot soldered in... Seems they needed to save $0.50 in manufacturing costs.
