Hi, I'm new to these forums and was wondering whether some-one could help me out. Recently, I attempted to update my graphics card and failed. Anyway, I (as the total cool kid I am) wanted to play minecraft, but got the "Bad Video Card" error. It explained I needed OpenGL to run the program. I was curious as to whether I could get OpenGL to work on minecraft without the use of a graphics card.

All help is appreciated.

Thanks.

No, you need a GFX card which provides hardware acceleration for OpenGL to play Minecraft. Any nVidia and AMD graphics cards will do this.
