There is a very simple fix that worked for me without needing to type anything in a command line.
1. Right click on your desktop, somewhere empty
2. Click on 'Properties' (or just navigate to your Display Properties window in Control Panel)
3. Click 'Settings'
4. At the bottom right of the window that pops up is a tab titled 'Advanced' <---- click this tab
5. One of the tab options at the top of the window will be 'Troubleshoot' <---- click this tab
6. Now you will see 'Hardware acceleration and a slider bar that says 'None' on the left and 'Full' on the right.
7. You need to move the slider bar to just about the middle spot. For me it was the point just left of the middle that allowed it to work for me.
8. Click 'Apply'
9. Now go play Minecraft.
My laptop had this issue and I was able to get it running (pretty low fps) with this method. My laptop has an integrated Intel GMA950 graphics chipset.
Hope this helps.
