So, I recently re-OSed my computer, as it was getting a little slow and cluttered. I usually do this about 3-4 times a year, and it's kept my 2005 tower pretty spiffy. What I'm confused about, is that this time, but no other time in the past, it is giving me a bad video card driver error. This has never happened to me before after re-OSing the computer.
I've ran it in compatibility mode for windows XP. I've downloaded that non-english-as-a-first-language guy's minecraft.exe and the jar file and tinkered with that the best I could to no avail. Not sure what's going on.
It's just a standard windows 7, registered 100%, ran all of the windows updates, have the latest version of Java, have a good graphics card, have the latest minecraft download, so, what's going on? need help :C my creativity is choked
Post a dxdiag.
1) Run 'dxdiag' (Windows + R), Click 'Save All Information'
2) Open dxdiag.txt, copy/paste up to Sound Devices in code snippet tags.
hmm, guess that would be clever now wouldn't it.
