    posted a message on accelerated OpenGL mode
    Quote from tomlinson1678

    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.

    is all i know that its 7 years old will minecraft be able to run on it
    can anybody help me


    Hey Everyone,

    I've got the SAME problem but I FIXED it myself.
    So this is what you have to do:

    1. Delete your MineCraft (including the .minecraft folder in %appdata%).

    2. Restart your computer and install your videocard driver (if you haven't installed it yet) or search for updates for your already installed videocard driver.

    3. Download and install an OpenGL Driver (Depending on your Operating System and Video Card Brand):

    Downloading OpenGL

    In all three major desktop platforms (Linux, MacOS X, and Windows), OpenGL more or less comes with the system. However, you will need to ensure that you have downloaded and installed a recent driver for your graphics hardware.

    Windows

    Appropriate Windows driver websites:

    Some sites also distribute beta versions of graphics drivers, which may give you access to bug fixes or new functionality before an official driver release from the manufacturer:

    Without drivers, you will default to a software version of OpenGL 1.1 (on Win98, ME, and 2000), a Direct3D wrapper that supports OpenGL 1.1 (WinXP), or a Direct3D wrapper that supports OpenGL 1.1 (Windows Vista and Windows 7). None of these options are particularly fast, so installing drivers is always a good idea.

    Linux

    Graphics on Linux is almost exclusively implemented using the X windows system. Supporting OpenGL on Linux involves using GLX extensions to the X Server. There is a standard Application Binary Interface defined for OpenGL on Linux that gives application compatibility for OpenGL for a range of drivers. In addition the Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI) is a driver framework that allows drivers to be written and interoperate within a standard framework to easily support hardware acceleration, the DRI is included in of XFree86 4.0 but may need a card specific driver to be configured after installation. These days, XFree86 has been rejected in favor of XOrg due to the change in the license of XFree86, so many developers left Xfree86 and joined the XOrg group. Popular Linux distros come with XOrg now. Developers

    Vendors have different approaches to drivers on Linux, some support Open Source efforts using the DRI, and others support closed source frameworks but all methods support the standard ABI that will allow correctly written OpenGL applications to run on Linux.

    For more information on developing OpenGL applications on Linux, see Platform specifics: Linux

    Linux comes with Mesa libraries, which implements the OpenGL API as a software rasterizer. Most Linux distros don't come with hardware acceleration. Some Linux distributions may include support for hardware acceleration. Also, some GPUs have Open Source drivers developed by the community even though a close source driver may be available from the manufacturer.

    Mac OS X

    Unlike other platforms, where the Operating System and OpenGL implementations are often updated separately, OpenGL updates are included as part of Mac OS X system updates. To obtain the latest OpenGL on Mac OS X, users should upgrade to the latest OS release, which can be found at Apple.com.

    For developers, a default installation of Mac OS X does not include any OpenGL headers, nor does it include other necessary development tools. These are installed by a separate developer tools package called Xcode. This installer includes the OpenGL headers, compilers (gcc), debuggers (gdb), Apple's Xcode IDE, and a number of performance tools useful for OpenGL application development.

    For more information on developing OpenGL applications on Mac OS X, see Platform specifics: Mac OS X.

    4. Restart your computer again.


    5. Install Java (depending on your 32 or 64 bit Operating System): http://java.com/en/download/


    6. Restart your computer.


    7. Download the MineCraft client and run it: http://www.minecraft.net/download


    8. MineCraft now works if you did it good.


    If MineCraft still doesn't work, you'll have to buy a new computer with a new graphicscard and increased RAM memory.

    My Operating System, Graphicscard and RAM memory:


    Windows 7 64 bit, Ati Radeon 5750 512 mb and 2GB RAM memory.
