So here's my Error Report :

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.

If that has a sis mirage 3 graphics chipset in it then I don't think it will work.

Here are the OpenGL specs for that card...

I haven't looked into this for a couple of months so there may be a fix now. If you search for one and that is the graphics adapter in your notebook search specifically for the sis mirage 3 solutions to running Minecraft.

Let us know if you find anything. Lot's of other people are looking for this :)
