Problem Running MinecraftEdu on fresh install of windows 7
Good Day all
I wonder if some1 more in the know can shed light on the reason i am getting the following error message when trying to run Minecraft:
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.

This is a fresh install and as far as i know the display drivers are up to date, however i am currently in the process of getting drivers off MSi's website. Will have to see if this works.
Please can i get some help here
Thanks in advance

The times I've seen that have been down to a mix of Intel drivers being dodgy and Java not being installed correctly. You are running an out of date Java version too.
Reinstall both and try again.
