    So i'm trying to play MineCraft and i get the message that i have a bad video driver. So i checked it out with the troubleshooter or w/e and it was just fine. And all of my drives are up to date and minecraft is indeed compatable with my system so why do 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.

    I've seen this question on this site before and followed what the answer was and it didn't work for me; also i have watched various guides for this problem and it doesn't work either, so i need hands-on help. I'm not that smart when it comes to technology so please describe HOW i'm suppose to do something instead of telling me to do it. Thank you.

    1. Download newest graphic card drivers
    2. Download Java 1.7SDK from their site
    3. Install all above
    4. GO to your minecraft folder (it's in application data in documents and settings, if you were fighting with this bug you'll know the dir perfectly)
    5. Delete whole bin directory from game folder.
    6. Go to desktop (default place for minecraft.exe)
    7. Create .txt file and put in those commands:
    @echo off
    java -Xincgc -Xmx800m -jar minecraft.exe
    pause
    8. Save it as "minecraft.bat" file and open it.
    Now every time you launch the game, launch it via .bat file.
    this is latest java.http://www.java.com/en/
