i have updated to windows 8 pro and i get this error below, i have an amd HD graphics card and it has been affecting all other games i have tryed to play on my computer could some one give me some advice and don't waste your time telling to update my drivers because i have updated all of my drivers
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.

If you have installed windows 8 drivers for your graphics card from the manufacturers site. (www.amd.com or www.intel.com or www.nvidia.com), but the game still doesn't work, Windows is overriding the drivers. You need to manually override them.
Go to Control Panel
Go to Device Manager (You may have to change the view of control panel to see this)
Expand Display Adapters by clicking on the arrow
Right click your graphics card and select Properties, for example, mine was named AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200
Go to the Driver tab
Click Update Driver
Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
Select the driver that is NOT from Microsoft Corporation
It should now install the driver software, this may take a few minutes. During the proccess your screen will go black, but it should come back shortly after, this is because in order for your computer to change your driver, it must uninstall the old driver which displays graphics on your screen
You have successfully changed the driver of your computer, you should not need to restart, however, if you are still failing to play, do so now
