minecraft website problem best answer 10 points plz?

if im reposting its because your other peoples ways didnt work

everytime i try to play minecraft it says this

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.

    what video card do you have? If it doesn't support OpenGL then you'll need a new one.

    browser mode doesnt make a difference because it still runs off of your video card.

    theres really not enough information here to make a definite decision. but it sounds like you just need to buy a new video card.

    your other option is to just update your video card drivers like it says to... that would've been the first thing i tried.
