  1. so i have a windows xp laptop and minecraft keeps crashing it says

    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.

    I have tried to re download it and stuff but it still wont work
  2. I suggest:
    New video card drivers! You make it sound like you just reinstalled MC
  3. It happend when i got 1.3.2 an yes i tried re installing MC
  4. You need to go to nvidia.com and get the updated drivers (or whatever brand your gfx card is) and download, install and then reboot your computer. Also, i see
    as a flag, if you have mods or a hacked client on there, try doing a force update.
  5. k thnks if tried nividia but i dont know what driver i have
  6. Go to start>right click on computer>properties
  7. do i go to device manger
  8. i cant find the graphics card
  9. Look under display adapters
