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.

No problem! I just need to update my video drivers... How hard can that be? Well as it turns out the new version of video driver I need has some sort of unresolved error in it and when you install it on certain computers you loose your video feed. I'm working with 64bit Windows 7 so I thought it might just been a compatibility problem with my OS. I installed vista 32bit and no change the minute I update the driver down goes the video. So I went browsing the web for solutions... I haven't found any for the driver issue yet everyone with it just winds up rolling their driver back and making do. I used OpenGL extention Viewer to check the status of my OpenGL and it said under the OpenGL tab "Version 1.1". I ran the render test and it said that Version 1.2 was partially supported.
Does anyone know of a way around this? I have an XPS One A2420 computer if it makes a diference. I also have access to a new video card if I need it (pain the butt to install though).
Thanks for your help but I think I am up against a wall.
