    Minecraft - Bad video card Driver

    Trying to run minecraft though a portable bat file that i made.

    This works fine on a Dell Optiplex 360 (windows 7 Intel Gfx) and Samsung p500 (Windows 7, ATI mobile gfx card)

    But when i try these on windows xp laptops (stones) and Other Dell 360s running windows XP i get a Error saying. Bad video card drivers! (will post log in a sec from laptop)

    I have updated gfx card drivers and java to the computers.

    Any ideas before i start loosing hair?

    This is the error i get:

    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.

    From memory in 1.6.6 they added a new opengl system, I think you can disable it from within %appdata%\.minecraft in the options file. However this is completely from memory.
