org.lwjgl.LWJGLException: Pixel format not accelerated

What does this mean? It was on a computer running Windows XP. I think it may have an onboard video card, which would probably be the reason, but I'm not sure if that's the case.

The problem is likely from bad graphics drivers. Take a look at http://lwjgl.org/forum/index.php/topic,2888.0.html for an option. But don't expect it to run fast. Tongue
