Well okay then, but you did not provide a crash log, any error messages, or anything that would point us in the right direction to help you. What exactly is the issue? But in any case, please provide your DxDiag log.

Sorry about that here it is


  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.
