How to run Minecraft on Acer Aspire One Zg5 Netbook

My son has a Acer Aspire One Zg5 netbook.  I believe it's the first generation because it has the following configuration:

System Manufacturer    Acer
System Model           AOA150-1706
Processor              N270@1.60GHz x86 Family 6 Model 28
                       Stepping 2

Disk Drive             ST9160310AS 160GB

Chipset Family         Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express
Adapter Type           Intel(R) GMA 950, Intel Corporation compatible
Adapter RAM            256,00 MB

Total Physical Memory  1.00 GB

So he wanted to run "Minecraft" on it, but keep getting a error:

"Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelarated OpenGL mode."

and it sad also that this can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers, so I started to research the driver updates with no success.

So after a few days looking in blogs and reviews about Minecraft, I finally found this solution:

Making it simple just disable your hardware acceleration manually like this:

That's it.

Have fun.
