Help? Bad video card drivers?

Discussion in 'Empire Help & Support' started by TomvanWijnen, Jan 22, 2013.

  1. So, I just got a new computer from school, and i wanted to play Minecraft on it. But when i start Minecraft, it says 'Bad video card drivers!'

    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.
