K1000M and Minecraft

I can't seem to get minecraft working on my W530. I did a clean install, installed the latest version of lenovo's nvidia graphics drivers, and reinstalled both the 64 and 32 bit versions of Java, but the desktop version stil just shows a black square, and the browser version gives me a "Bad video card drivers!... couldn't find an accelerated OpenGL mode." error. Has anyone else been able to get minecraft working? Or does anyone know where the problem might be?

Re: K1000M and Minecraft

I can't get cmd to use the jar right, I think the instructions on the minecraft wiki are outdated. It is the minecraft.jar in %appdata%/roaming/.minecraft/bin, right? I'm doubtful that the issue is in the way I'm launching minecraft, though.

Re: K1000M and Minecraft

It works fine when I change the graphics device in the BIOS from "Optimus" to "Discrete". Or "Integrated". I only have problems in "Optimus" mode.

Try installing the latest Quadro Certified Driver from NVIDIA's site?

Re: K1000M and Minecraft

The Quadro K1000M (1100M) isn't even on Nvidia's driver page. The only drivers out there are from lenovo, and I just installed them. And I restarted. And... it works. I swear I installed these drivers just yesterday, and again this morning. >.>

Try forcing it to use the Nvidia GPU in the Nvidia Control Panel.
