when i try to start up my game minecraft i get the following message

 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.

You need to have a graphics card which supports Open GL mode. If you do have such a card then you may have to set it up to run in Open GL mode. Post here which graphics card you have, you can get the information off the device manager. (Windows control Panel)

For XP try this driver
For Windows 7/Vista 32-bit try this version of the Ion driver first before updating to a newer one.
Otherwise post the version of Windows you're using

The graphics card is built into the motherboard. Also try updating your motherboard drivers.

It's just the v 260 Ion's are known to work well with Minecraft.
