So heres the situtation. Ive recently got a new computer but the screen was broke so I got a diff one from a freind. The tower is a Dell and the monitor is a ProView monitor. (also I've had to buy a video adapter for it so the monitor would plug into the tower, Idk if that has any thing to do with it.)So I ran Minecraft and I got to the login screen and loged in. It updates then the screen goes back for about 7 secs and this error message pops up.


This message:

      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.

That graphics card is about 7 years out of date. The latest drivers for it were in 2010. I would hazard a guess at saying it isn't powerful enough for minecraft.

With that graphics card, no it's a lost cause my friend sorry. I would suggest investing in a new computer all together. Odds are that your computer won't have the correct expansion port to handle a new graphics card.

This. Do this first.  

Don't make the assumption it can't run it just yet.  You'd be surprised.
