    After installing and updating Feed The Beast, I get this message when it tries to start:

    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.

    Can you run Vanilla Minecraft fine on this computer?

    As it says, you should try updating your video card drivers. This error pretty much means that Minecraft is trying to use the video card for something the video card is not able to do, specifically Advanced OpenGL. Updating the drivers usually adds this functionality.
    Unfortunately, if this doesn't work, I have never found a workaround system. You have no choice but to buy a new graphics card if this doesn't work.

    As AgentTadpole said, you'll need to get the latest drivers for your video card. What do you have?

    I don't have a video card, I'm using the built in Intel HD Graphics on the i3 3220. Does anyone know if they support openGL? I haven't been able to find an answer anywhere. Thanks
