    May not work properly on GMA950 series.
    Like i said, older gpu may not get OpenGL update in its driver.

    Update Java


    It has nothing to do with OPENGL....for people that are still looking for a solution.

    Make sure you have the newest version of Java as well as the 64bit if your using a 64bit system.

    This thread is now fixed....

    Not sure if OpenGL is the culprit but it's best to cover all of the bases; don't want to rule anything out that may be the actual cause of problems. Also, don't jump to conclusions too early please...

    Back to the topic...

    DoJo Master, update OpenGL if you haven't, if that doesn't fix the issue try to disable "Advanced OpenGL in Minecraft Video Settings if it's enabled.

    Have you run Minecraft on this PC before Windows 8?
