I tried playing minecraft on my laptop for the first time in quite a while today, and I got the following error report:
	  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.

So I went and checked my system update tool, and it said everything was up to date. That's pretty much the only thing I could think of doing. The laptop I'm using is a Toshiba NB205-N311/W. Any help is appreciated, I just want to play minecraft with my friends haha.

goto the video card manufactures website, windows update doesn't have a clue when it comes to updating video drivers

I have the same problem too.
I went to the manufacturer's website and found that it's up to date already.
Please help.
I can play minecraft before 1.4.5 update is out

As with windows update, you may have the latest version but it may not be completely installed. Download the latest package for you model and install it anyway.
