hi guys, just tryed booting up mc for the 1st time on this pc and it 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.

Go to the manufacturers web site and get the latest driver for your video card. If you have the latest driver then perhaps your video card does not support the game.
