Hello. I recently updated to Windows 8 and reinstalled all my drivers and such correctly. I tried running Minecraft today for the first time and it gave me an error message about not being able to start in accelerated OpenGL mode. So I checked my video drivers which were up-to-date, reinstalled them and still doesn't work. No idea what's going on but if someone could suggest something that's wrong other than to update my video drivers that would be great.
