Hi, Javivelez

 

I did some research on your error and it seems like you're trying to play MineCraft. Is that correct? If so, then I would recommend updating your display drivers, which you should be able to find here. Select your appropriate operating system and select "Display" under category. This will bring up the display drivers for your machine and operating system.

 

Good luck,

Adam

Re: Opengl Lenovo t61

Hi again, Javivelez

 

I was thinking about this issue earlier, and I came across this post from Tout1108G that will help you enable Open GL on your machine, provided you are running Windows XP. I still recommend updating the driver, but on Windows XP, Open GL needs to be manually enabled. 

 

Hope it helps,

Adam

Hi again, Javivelez

 

Could you possibly try to run the game and copy and paste the entire error message that you get? It may be quite long, but every little bit helps when trying to solve an issue.

 

Thanks in advance,

Adam

Re: Opengl Lenovo t61

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.

Re: Opengl Lenovo t61

Hi again, Javivelez

 

I've looked over your error and have seen this before, or one similar to it at least. If you've updated your graphics drivers, then I would next try updating your version of Java, which you can do here. Minecraft works off of Java, which is why it is able to function in a web browser if the user so chooses. It is important to make sure that this always stays updated when attempting to play Minecraft. 

 

Try updating Java, and let me know how it goes.

 

Good luck!

Adam

Re: Opengl Lenovo t61

Hi adam!

i´ve tried installing the java 7 and it seems that it worked but i still can not run minecraft. 

In a previous reply you said "...Open GL needs to be manually enabled." perhaps that is the problem because i don´t find what could be. perhaps the game is the problem but i tried the browser version and i have  the same error. Otherwise i don´t know if my computer can run it, it´s a lenovo T61, with windows xp professional service pack 3 with intel core 2 duo t7300@2.00GHz, 1,97 gb ram, and Mobile Intel 965 Express chipset family. i hadn´t modified nothing.

You have any idea??

Thanks in advance and see you later

Re: Opengl Lenovo t61

Hi, Javivelez

 

You will want to check and make sure OpenGL is installed on your system. If you go to My Computer > C:\ > WINDOWS, you will see a folders called SYSTEM and SYSTEM32. Open both folders and look for OpenGL32.dll. If you find it, DO NOT click on this file; just make sure it is installed on your computer. You can also try to remove all versions of Java from your machine and try to install the latest version again. Sometimes, the versions of Java can conflict with each other and cause issues. To uninstall/check for previous versions of Java, you can go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. If there is only one version of Java installed, then there is likely no reason to remove it.

 

One question: When you attempt to run Minecraft in the browser, do you get the same error you posted earlier or something different?

 

Best of luck,

Adam
