Why wont minecraft run on windows 7 bootcamp?

Why wont minecraft run on windows 7 bootcamp?

Postby llewellyn53 » Thu Jul 12, 2012 8:10 am

I am running windows 7 on a 2010 macbook pro with osx lion. Here's the error message I get 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.

Minecraft is not the only game that this happens for it happens for all of them, not this specific error message but something along the lines of bad or insufficient video
