Bad video card drivers!
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

This only happens when I play it on the launcher because I can play it just fine on the browser but of course it won't let me right now :
Name: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family
Maufacturer: Intel Corporation
I've looked for drivers for it but I can't find any..
I downloaded the correct file for my computer and placed it in the same area as i have saved Minecraft in, but still i get that "Bad video card drivers!" error. Is there somewhere special i have to place it??!
My (msi)laptop say it has Standard VGA Graphics Adapter and it said its completely update.When I go to launcher and try to play it says Bad video card drivers. It worked before I reinstalled my laptop and installed Win 7 instead of Vista.
run this scan on your PC.it will automatically detect and update.and it is safe because it is intel's.but will only work if the hardware is of intel.Then if you are still getting the problem,time to get a new graphics card!
So, I've been getting the same problems as the thread creator. I tried upgrading my video card driver only to find out I couldn't. It was up to date but couldn't use the driver (error code 31). Then I managed to make that right (had to install 94 other updates while doing it) but now my computer can't find the video card driver and apparently I'm usin the VGA standard and of course I still get the error message in minecraft. both in serer and not. BTW my video card "used to be" INTEL 82945g express family chipset.
Guys! Do you NOT understand!? Ya know what happened during the website was down,HACKING! Its a reasonable explanation, because SMP is acting laggy,You cannot play In-browser.Dont,Dont do anything online.with.minecraft.
