Some video cards don't work well with Swing Applications?

Has anyone had trouble with their swing application running on certain video cards? I am currently testing an application, seems to run fine on a few systems except for a system with a VIA TECH 8361/8601 video card(onboard video). Reducing the the systems resolution to 640x480 and 256 colors causes the program to run fine. Anything above that and parts of the application get stuck on the screen(move the window, and parts of the window appear at the old location). Is this common or possibly just a video driver problem?

Doesn't seem too odd except that it might be specific to Swing. I would imagine it's not just Swing applications that run poorly at higher resolutions. It could be lots of things though. To name a few
  • Video Driver issues
  • Hardware/OS issues (Don't know what OS we are talking about)
  • Bad installation of hardware/software
  • Damaged/Bad card
  • Low end/cheap card (I didn't look this card up, so I don't know)


  • And the list goes on. None of these would be specifically related to Swing though.
