I just recently baught minecraft. When i open it up and log in it gives me the error bad video card drivers. I have looked everywhere for a fix but i dont have a clue on what to do. I have tried updating windows. (i have windows 7x64 bit). as well as updating my Driver for my video card.
which is VisionTek. Radeon HD 4670. I dont see why im getting this problem because I run "RIFT" which is an MMO perfectly without problems.

If anyone could help me it would be great. I just dont have a clue as to what i should do. I have tried the tut in the forums but it was a fail :(.

Sorry for bad english.

This is the error i have copy and pasted from the game



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.

well if you have an Nvidia driver, just search Nvidia drivers with internet explorer, and follow the steps on there :D if Nvidias not your driver type, then...what is it? :P

Hey Pierre, did you not read the part where he said "As well as updating my driver for my video card"?

Why do people like you just have to try to make others feel stupid? If your not here to help then just don't post.
If I helped you in any way, or if you think my smart-assed comments were funny. Please hit the green button in the lower right corner of my post. Thanks!

As an experiment, have you tried running Rift, minimizing it, and then launching Minecraft?
