I am getting the same error even after dowloading the fix from WithinWindows this is the erro message i get  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.

Try updating LWJGL.

The problem is that you most likely don't have the needed drivers for your machine; AMD has legacy drivers if your machine is running a Radeon HD 2000, 3000, or 4000 Series card. You can find the legacy drivers here. I had the exact same issue as you (pixel format not accelerated), and installing these legacy drivers solved it.

Also, Mikko_blu, how would updating LWJGL help if he's getting the error "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."? Sorry if I'm incorrect, but I don't think updating LWJGL would ever help with that (the latest version of LWJGL has a flaw there you can't use your mouse button and keyboard keys at the same time, anyways).
If I helped you, make sure to upvote my posts.
