Hey guys, I have a quick question on how to fix my Minecraft "bad video card driver" error I get when-ever I launch Minecraft. I don't have any idea on how I can fix this. I'm on a laptop just so you all know. I hope you guys can help me out. Thanks.

Laptops don't usually have an appropriate video-card, probably this is leading to this error.

Download, put these files somewhere you want, I put it into my .minecraft folder.

Run 'run.bat'.

Make a shortcut on your desktop and change the icon, if you want to.

@user Seekay: Thanks. I will give this a try.

@user dENd: I will check it out. Thanks.

@user Mechanolith: That's what I keep thinking but I see that Seekay is giving me this thing with-out OpenGL. I will try that and then after I might just resort to getting a desktop.

Thanks for answers. I will give some a try.

@user Seekay: I tried that file. Once I open it it's a valid file (corrupted). Thanks thou.

@user dENd: Gonna look at the video now.

Orrr .. you could replace the video card.

My laptop runs minecraft just fine. Also, I travel so much that a desktop would just be burdensome.
Who needs a sig?

@user Chex: From what I hear, you can't replace video-cards in laptops. Due to it being all messed up and 1 buy and that's what you get from a store. I will ask my Dad and see if you can replace the video card out of my laptop. Thanks.

I had that problem too, but I've got a better graphics card and it works perfectly.
You could watch some videos which ''can'' fix that.

@user Jela331: Yeah. The video from, dENd0Mania worked for me. I just have 1 little problem now that it's working. Some of the blocks that I place won't show up. Or if I'm to break a block, it breaks, but it still shows that the block is there. The same thing happens if I'm building. Any ideas of why that's not working?

You have to run 'run.bat', not the jar.

Don't replaced the Minecraft.jar in your bin-folder with the original one, these are totally different files. Just put it into another folder.

(I have the same problem and that's the only way I can play Minecraft..)

@user dENd: Alright thanks. I haven't seen it happen again which is very weird.

@user Seekay: No, listen. I downloaded the file. I click "Open File" then it says that the file is corrupted.

@user TheDoomGuy9035: Nope.

@user Mechanolith: Nice. How is Windows 7?

@user Seekay: I know I'm not doing anything wrong. It might just be that I'm using Google Chrome or something really odd. Anyways. My Minecraft works now.
