    Default Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode

    Hi,

    I installed craft mine in my windows 8 release preview. I got an error message when I start it.

    "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."

    Thanks.

    Check on the updated beta Graphics Driver. This thread has links to both NVidia and AMD drivers. This thread has a link to Intel drivers.

    Uninstall and reinstall your graphic drivers.
