Hi guys.
So this topic is worn away to death, but I really need some sort of good answer. Whenever I run Minecrat, I see this message

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.

I have recently become aware that this error occurs because I am running Windows 8, which is apparently incompatible with Minecraft. There have been several internet solutions such as 'Update Video Card Drivers to something else than what you are using' but I only have one other compatible video card driver and it is incompatible with Minecraft as well. I currently am playing on a Toshiba Satellite L655. If you need any other information, please let me know, I would be happy to provide. By the way, don't say 'I run windows 8 and MC works fine!' Not only is that completely unhelpful and irrelevant, it   es me off because I have to search through mounds of crap to find a good answer. Thanks for you help!

Either Post your DxDiag or google your graphics card and find an update for it.

How to obtain your DxDiag.
I used to be a Support Guru, but then ran out of time. I have more time now, but I'll only make the occasional helpful post.

Spoiler:

I hope this helped, what is the meaning  of it anyway?

It's essentially your system specs.

In any case, this is your issue.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM v1.20)

Microsoft's generic drivers do not support OpenGL on Windows 8, hence you need to update or replace your drivers. As AMD's auto detect tool does not support TOSHIBA laptops, do the following.

1. First try the TOSHIBA drivers, here and run the game. - http://cdgenp01.csd....tc70139800o.exe
2. If that does not fix the issue, a workaround is to install the desktop version of the Radeon HD drivers here, choose Catalyst Software Suite - http://support.amd.c...iw_vista64.aspx

After over 4 months of not playing Minecraft, you have found a solution! I am in you debt. Thank so, so much!
