So i recenlty bought Minecraft, and it works fine on my Laptop, but when i tried to run it on an older desktop, it had an error message on the launcher "Bad video card driver" So i updated my video card driver on Dell's website and tried to run it agian. Same message. So i gave up, then one day i was on my desktop and i started up minecraft classic in my browser and it worked! Why won't the actual game work?

what specs is your desktop? (Ram/video card name)

Classic is ridiculously old and completely different.

Is your java up to date? It may affect this.

Either your Java's out of date, or you have video cards from 9 years ago that are covered in coffee stains and mold.

Do this. I had the same problem and it fixed it for me. If that fails then you just have a bad card.
