    Default Can't load MineCraft - Windows 8

    I am getting abad Video Card error when attempting to play games such as MineCraft. The error occurs every time I try to load my game and I have loaded it using a different Hard Drive with windows 7 and it loads fine. when viewing the error report message with in my game log I noticed it says
    "OS: Windows NT (unknown) (x86) version 6.2
    Java: 1.6.0_30, Sun Microsystems Inc.
    VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (mixed mode), Sun Microsystems Inc.
    LWJGL: 2.4.2
    [failed to get system properties (java.lang.NullPointerException)]"

    I have a x64 system and I have checked all the driver updates and there are NO optional updates at all, the updates that I have in my history are all
    "Update for Windows 8 Consumer Preview for x64-based Systems"
    There where 4 updates installed and still getting same message saying I need to update my video card so I have also went to the device manager and tried to update the drivers directly from NVIDEA still NO luck any way to fix my problem..

    This thread is well over a year old. If the OP hasn't fixed the problem by now, he never will.

    Dredging OLD threads is frowned upon here!
