I just bought Minecraft a couple days ago and can't run it. I tried both the standalone version and the Java one, but I get this error every time.



      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.

Means your computer doesn't meet the requirements that minecraft has to play the game, alot of computers can't run it, especially laptops. If you go to the manufacturer's website for your computer there should be an option to update your graphics card. If not you could try going to like a BestBuy and having GeekSquad do it for you  :Spider:

I have a mobile intel 965 express family chipset as my graphics card. And like I mentioned previously, it's up to date.
