Hello,Hi i have the 82865g Graphics controller on my windows xp and i want to play minecraft but it always glitches and says
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.

  1. Well, did you try to update the video drivers? What are your computer specs anyway?
  2. Sunius is probably right. Either your drivers or your actual hardware are probably too old to use the OpenGL methods Mojang uses to draw Minecraft. It is built on a very old version of OpenGL, though, so updating your drivers should do it!
  3. You should be able to update your drivers, go to the Intel website, and get it to work. But regardless the game will be practically unplayable. I had the same problem back when I was still using my Optiplex GX620.
