So, Everytime i try to play the downloadable version of minecraft the screen pops up and says
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.

I was just wondering how do i fix that (like moding the prssesor). I have a Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset family (1.46 ghz dual core) and my computer is a dell inspiron 1520.
*i can play the online mode
**If you need anymore info just post it down bellow.
Is this a new video card? If so download all the drivers if you need any other help you can contact me I'll be glad to help you. I've had problems like this before but with another game I just updated my drivers after that it failed to work I called the company and they sent me a new graphics card that worked.
This appears to be a problem specifically related to using Intel Graphics Processors. I have 4 PCs I use. 2x ATI works fine, 1x Nvidia works fine and 1x Intel doesn't work. I've also tried on various other PCs with Intel GPU's to find the same results. My error messages are the same, or at least very close to the ones you recieve.
As previously suggested, try to get updated drivers from Intel. If the drivers have been dis-continued (as was the case with my Intel PC), you will have to wait until Notch comes up with a patch to fix this error.
So far I've only seen one person with Minecraft working on his system, and using an Intel GPU. I doubt updating your drivers will help, you're better off buying a cheap-ass 30-dollar GPU. It'll increase your game performance a lot, free up RAM thats normally used for your onboard intel GPU and make you look a lot cooler.
But how can I get a new GPU into my laptop? :ohmy.gif:
Unless you want to make wires be left hanging out your laptop all over the place, its very difficult to upgrade a laptop and then put the casing back on.
The reason so few people have got this game working with intel GPUs is because they suck so much ass that they are incapable of rendering anything more than a game from the 90's
I have an Intel Q963/Q965 card. My computer is a Dell Optiplex 745.
Quite frankly, the card sucks major balls.
Plus, since the card came with the computer, Dell took the liberty to make it's own drivers. They're loads worse than the generic Intel ones, and I can't install those generic ones because my computer thinks it's incompatable, when in reality it works fine with my card.
I did find a way to install the Intel drivers.
1. download .zip of the driver files
2. Go to system32
3. identify the graphics card drivers in system32 (use device manager for this)
4. Proceed to rename all the old .dll's and whatnots as .OLD files
5. drag&drop the new drivers into system32
7. Congradulations PFFTLOL, you've succeeded in manually installing video card drivers. Your openGL version evolved from 1.5 to 2.0!
8. But intel still sucks ****, so **** you. YOU CAN'T RUN MINECRAFT WITH THIS.
9. Give up and get a new video card
I have the same problem, but strangely the other way around. Minecraft worked fine untill I updated my drivers.

I have Windows 7 32 bit, but on the mistake it says this:
