      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.

 

That is the error i get, my video card is ATI Mobility Radeon 2300.

I tried uninstlling and reinstalling the driver but it doesn't work.

Any ideas?
