Question

"...

can this be fixed?"

-------------------------------------------------------

Maybe.  But that chipset will not run any viewer based on the newer SL V-3 code.  You'll have to settle for viewers based on the old SL 1.23 code (LL does not offer that viewer for download any longer.......it's basically obsolete).  Some TPV's still have viewers that are based on the 1.23 code.......but for how long, is anyone's guess (progress in the tech business moves forward, with or without you and anyone in the tech field will know that and move with the technology........or get left behind).

What you call "Intel 965 chipset" is officially named Graphics Media Accellerator 965 (abbreviated by GMA965).  It's an onboard graphics chipset designed for basic graphics......nothing heavy duty like real time 3d graphics which is what SL is all about).  The GMA chipsets are rapidly becoming obsolete themselves being replaced with on CPU chipset graphics (designated HD graphics).  Those accellerators are somewhat better than the GMA's but not by much....they are still designed for basic graphics without much for 3D graphics.

So back to the "maybe".  Check the TPV's for viewers that are designed for low end computers.  I think Imprudence has a viewer based on the 1.23 code that may work.......but it's been a while since I've even considered using a TPV (like almost 2 years) and Imprudence may have dropped that viewer and opted for the more feature rich viewers capable of showing SL as LL has it designed.
