It usually indicates a problem with your graphics card (Pixel Shading, I think.,.)
Update your drivers to the latest, that should fix it..

This. Some video cards are too old, and should either be updated with drivers, or replaced. If you're using an on-board video card, that might be why.

This can also happen when the GPU drivers crash... A computer restart will fix it in that case...
(I've had it happen to me)

Can you give me a good link to update drivers? Cause every link I tried they want money and I'm not spending money to update a driver for just this game when CoD4 runs on my computer.

Also what is a on-board video card? Like what's the difference from that and just a Video card?

Then their ripping you off.

Go to your manufacturer's website.
I disagree with you, therefore you are wrong.

I already updated and it still won't work. I mean what kinda of computer do you need to play this.... The game is just all a bunch of blocks. I played this at my friends house and it's a blast. If I can play CoD4 I should be able to play it on this.

Bleh it works on the other computer problem solved I guess but wierd thing is... it works on the slow computer. I mean wtf. Also the room the other computer is in it don't have a T.V so it won't be as fun.

Not sure, some graphic cards don't fit with minecraft for some reason. It could be it's settings.

Okay so here's the thing, it could just be Windows 7 with some graphics cards

I've got an ATI Radeon 3870x2 that has no problem running the game in Windows XP Pro
But I can't play it on my Win7 install. All of the drivers are up to date, my JRE is up to date
and I can play anything else... just not minecraft -_-

First Edit:
I know, however, that people can run the game in Windows7 and some people host servers on it even

Second Edit:
[butthurt]Java is a shitty language anyway[/butthurt]

I am having the same issue, i have a Radeon x1600, just a simple card. But i think i have a solution! Enabling hardware acceleration! This is done easily on windows XP by following steps layed out on this link:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/191660

But the instructions are kinda vague for Windows 7. Following the instructions for this lead you only to the screen to adjust the screen resolution. NOT enabling hardware acceleration. Any clue how to do that?, will post weather it works or not!

This error is caused when catalyst control center is not installed. after going to amd.com and installing Catalyst Control Center for my graphics card the game started no problem
