I keep getting  this error :[

  
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.

This only happens when I play it on the launcher because I can play it just  fine on the browser but of course it won't let me right now :[

The same for me! It worked without problems before the website went down. I can play the browser version though.

run this scan on your PC.it will automatically detect and update.and it is safe because it is intel's.but will only work if the hardware is of intel.Then if you are still getting the problem,time to get a new graphics card!

So, I've been getting the same problems as the thread creator. I tried upgrading my video card driver only to find out I couldn't. It was up to date but couldn't use the driver (error code 31). Then I managed to make that right (had to install 94 other updates while doing it) but now my computer can't find the video card driver and apparently I'm usin the VGA standard and of course I still get the error message in minecraft. both in serer and not. BTW my video card "used to be" INTEL 82945g express family chipset.

Can anyone help me what to do?
