bad video card drivers? Failed to find accelerated OpenGL mode?

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.

I had the same problem But I found a way
Try this:
1.Go to control Panel
2. Go to Display
3. click settings
4. click advanced, a scree will pop up
5. At that screen go to troubleshoot.
6. There you will see a dragger
7. Drag it on the third point, It will say that all DIRECT3d will be disabled
8. Play minecraft!

P.s PLease notify me if it works coz it worked for me
