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.

As previously suggested, try to get updated drivers from Intel. If the drivers have been dis-continued (as was the case with my Intel PC), you will have to wait until Notch comes up with a patch to fix this error.

Unless you want to make wires be left hanging out your laptop all over the place, its very difficult to upgrade a laptop and then put the casing back on.
The reason so few people have got this game working with intel GPUs is because they suck so much ass that they are incapable of rendering anything more than a game from the 90's

I have an Intel Q963/Q965 card. My computer is a Dell Optiplex 745.
Quite frankly, the card sucks major balls.
Plus, since the card came with the computer, Dell took the liberty to make it's own drivers. They're loads worse than the generic Intel ones, and I can't install those generic ones because my computer thinks it's incompatable, when in reality it works fine with my card.
I did find a way to install the Intel drivers.
1. download .zip of the driver files
2. Go to system32
3. identify the graphics card drivers in system32 (use device manager for this)
4. Proceed to rename all the old .dll's and whatnots as .OLD files
5. drag&drop the new drivers into system32
7. Congradulations PFFTLOL, you've succeeded in manually installing video card drivers. Your openGL version evolved from 1.5 to 2.0!
8. But intel still sucks dick, so fuck you. YOU CAN'T RUN MINECRAFT WITH THIS.
9. Give up and get a new video card

Hardware acceleration must die.
We need to go back to the days where graphics adapters just took an image written to it and then put it through the cable.

Also, Generic monitor for 1366x768 @ 60Hz.
Runs Minecraft just fine.
Also, images are gone, but I didn't have to worry much... none were on my sig. Others have different opinions...
