    i recently got minecraft and when i try to play it it says 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.

    either that or your videocard DOES NOT SUPPORT OPENGL.

    that means that you should look for a videocard that supports OPENGL 1.X (where x is higher than 3)

    Holland, somewhere :D
    Might as well try to play it on a better system, you might at least want WAY better cpu speed.. ofc it laggs this way.. Minecraft is being drawn inside the memory of the pc, thus explaining the lag you have, as it doesnt really have the minimum specs.

    no its just it doesnt know what make your on board video card it so gets all confused


    First Download Driver Magician Download
    Install it , then click “Register” and use below Register name & Registration code

    Code:
    Register Name : Czytelnik
    Registration Code : 7ELF9d9f39-385B3
    This software is provided for free in PC World Magazine and the license is same for all.

    then scan for drivers and it will find all your latest drivers

    download and install

    dam minecraft works and sure fixes other stuff

    In your start/globe menu, go to the "run" command. Type "dxdiag" with no quotes and press enter, then go to the "display" section and take a screenshot for us.
