When I press “OpenGL render active viewport” blender does not render but tell next: “Failed to create OnepGL off-screen buffer, unknown”. 2.68a and 2.69 versions - the same, I have ATI Radeon HD 3300 Graphics videocard, and device manager tell: “device work correct”. Thank you and sorry for my bad English.
Ensure drivers are up to date
In User Preferences / System, try VBOs on/off and different window draw method options
There have been problems in the past with old integrated graphics cards so yours may be the same
