It looks like this

      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.

How many times does this have to be said until people stop spamming about it?

Look here for information on OpenGL support for various Intel chipsets. What is your chipset?

Quote from that site:
Drivers that come with Windows* or that are downloaded from Windows* Update typically do not support OpenGL. For optimal performance of OpenGL applications, install the latest graphics drivers from Intel.
