  1. when I try to log into MC via my laptop I get this message

    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.

  2. think I fixed it :) good ol' amd video drives have free upgrades
  3. Good to hear, I was going to suggest buying a new laptop. That is what I had to do a year ago. Laptops just don't seem to have the power of a desktop when it comes to video cards.
  4. You might want to update to Java 7 too as well. It will help out with other Java/Minecraft funkiness.
  5. yeah, jdk1.7.0
  6. no its still giving me that message
  7. Do you have any mods installed? If so, try straight vanilla to see if it appears again.
  8. no mods, no nothing
  9. Did you try toggling the Advanced OpenGL option in Video Settings?
  10. Everdras Bit Shifter

    What make, model and series is your graphics card?
  11. pythros, i get that alert when I click 'login' and I have an Acer aspire series 32x if that helps Everdras
  12. go to Start -> Run. Type dxdiag and enter. Go to display (1) tab and the info needed is under Device.
  13. Standard VGA Graphics adaptor
  14. everything hates me...

    everything you could imagine going wrong with a computer has happened to me...

    and nobody can help...

    the video card
    movie maker
    ALL screen recorders
    faulty mouse
    incredibly slow
    no MC

    can anyone explain why whenever I record something with a screen recorder it always says, 'windows media player found a problem and couldnt run this' It is so depressing
  15. A lot of your problems point to you gfx card. The fact that you stated "Standard VGA Graphics adaptor" does't help much. What does it exactly say on the Display tab in dxdiag?
  16. Device:
    Name: Standard VGA graphics adaptor
    Manafacturor: (Standard display types)
    Chip Type: ATI ATOMBIOS
    DAC TYPE: 8 Bit
    Approx. Total Memory: n/a
    Current Display mode: 1024 x 768 (32 bit) (1Hz)
    Monitor: Generic PnP Monitor
  17. please guys I need heeelp!
  18. It potential looks like your card isn't installed properly. Remove if within the Device Manager and try again with the drivers from Acer's website.
