Any help with this error would be greatly appreciated. I tried updating my video card drive (not sure if I did it right) and restarted when prompted. I launched the game again, and got this error.

 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.

My friend has the same error, and it somehow has something to do with OpenGL, so try updating that by using the windows update. Hope this helps :)

You are trying to run OpenGL (the setting that says Advanced OpenGL in Minecraft) on either:

1. A video card that doesn't support it. (Intel HD Graphics sucks anyways, GO WITH NVIDIA OR AMD!)
2. The driver for the video card is not up-to-date and doesn't support OpenGL.

These methods should work.

B. Update your driver, you can do this off the Intel website.

But seriously I would kill myself if I was running Intel HD Graphics. It's not even 2000, 3000, or even 4000 just regular!

But update your video card drivers, if that doesn't fix the problem then Intel HD Graphics don't support OpenGL apparently.

Can you please direct me to where I may download the drivers from? I'm having an incredibly hard time finding the correct one...

1. Don't all graphics card support openGL

2. I have a Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 and I get the same problem what do I do?

Your GPU is Intel HD Graphics, but it says that the manufacture is ATI so you could try getting Driver Sweeper and see if you see any ATI drivers which shouldn't be there.
Intel HD Graphics somehow uses ATI's graphics drivers which is wrong, removing the ATI drivers should get Minecraft working.

Luigi....that did not work at all. It ended up ruining my display and causing me much pain and anguish. I had to do a system restore and gratzi a dio that it worked. Any other ideas?

I have the same graphics card
all you need to do with the intel R HD is just updated its driver to something above 7.1
if you still get the error its to do with your motherboard
usual its integrated into the motherboard and is usually used as  a laptop Graphics card
