    Minecraft Having Graphics Problems

    Hello, I am having a serious problem with minecraft. No matter what version of minecraft I use or what graphics driver I use I always get this error on win 8.1. Not on 7, only 8. :
    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 Graphics card or chip do you have
    go to Device manager - display adapters - and see what is listed
    your driver does not support win 8 the installed driver is exactly what your card is but WDDM which does not support openGl
    only compatible with win 7
    do you have your motherboard DVD look at it if supports win 8
    or go to your motherboard website and find win 7 support \ win 8
