Help me i just updated my graphics cards and everythin and my minecraft wont work This it what it said:

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.

Disable DirectDraw and Direct3D accelerations.

And next time buy a computer with a graphics card.

Do that by right clicking on the desktop, then do properties>settings>advanced>troubleshoot, then drag the little pointer thing in the box down to the third tick from "none", then click "Apply"

I find Apple's OS prices amusing. They make you pay so much more for air, and many people think it's the OS that's putting on tons of money. But no, it's just the air inside the case.
