Any help with this error would be greatly appreciated. I tried updating my video card drive (not sure if I did it right) and restarted when prompted. I launched the game again, and got this error.
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.

Your GPU is Intel HD Graphics, but it says that the manufacture is ATI so you could try getting Driver Sweeper and see if you see any ATI drivers which shouldn't be there.
Intel HD Graphics somehow uses ATI's graphics drivers which is wrong, removing the ATI drivers should get Minecraft working.
I have the same graphics card
all you need to do with the intel R HD is just updated its driver to something above 7.1
if you still get the error its to do with your motherboard
usual its integrated into the motherboard and is usually used as a laptop Graphics card
