It is almost certainly due to miss-configured display card or monitor.
I would suggest upgrading your X-server at least if not your entire OS to RedHat 7.1.
If i'm not mistaken, 6.2 still uses x-3.3.5, and I don't think it had stable support for the 810 chipset yet.
X-4.x.x however does have full support for it.
Go to www.xfree86.org and read up on the compatibilities and maybe even try intel.com to see if you can't perhaps find a driver for the 810...

Give your grad a cloud of their own!

With up to 8TB of storage, give your favorite graduate their own personal cloud to centralize all their photos, videos and music in one safe place. They can save, sync and share all their stuff, and automatic photo backup helps free up space on their smartphone and tablet.

PS, if you want to istall just the X server without upgrading the OS, you can take a look at my website at www.linuxhelp.co.za and follow the hot topics link, it is a bit outdated ( don't have time to keep it up to date ;( ), but the steps would be similar for the latest version of X...

Try increasing the resloutin 1200X11xx 8 bit mode
and also try changing horizotal and vertical sync frequencies.
