Whenever I run Minecraft, I always get a pixel format not accelerated error. I've looked around and it seems to have something to do with updating a graphics card, but I don't know how to do that. I can't even find my graphics card information! Can someone help me or provide an alternate solution?

Minecraft uses the graphics library LWJGL. It is saying that you do not have 3D acceleration available. I get this if I try running the game in a remote desktop.

Do you know what brand of video card that you have? If not, supply your computer's brand and model and someone should be able to direct you to a driver update.
